Sean Taylor, M.F.A. is the Project Manager and Lead Fabrication Technician at the IMRC Center at the University of Maine. Taylor received his Master of Fine Arts degree from the Intermedia MFA program at UMaine, where he received the Dick Higgins Award for Academic Excellence in 2014 for his work using photogrammetry and color 3D printing to represent how technology and social attitudes can influence how certain Americans become sociologically objectified by our incarceration system. During grad school he was integral in the designing and implementation of the new intermedia art and technology labs. His background in installation art and sculpture informs his practical application of aesthetics in modern technical fabrication techniques. As the lab manager at the IMRC Center he studies the science of creativity and develops processes that utilize modern fabrication techniques (e.g. – 3D printing, electronics, lasers, CNC, vinyl printing, etc.) in the pursuit of education and the commercialization of art-based research. When he isn’t installing electric kits in old bikes or chasing around two awesome kids with his wife he is developing new processes for technical artistic creation and studying
theories in teaching postmodern innovation techniques. He is currently developing classes that introduce tech students to intermedial modes and processes with advanced technology.
