Kazys Varnelis

 

Kazys Varnelis (b. 1967, Chicago) is an artist, historian, and synthesist. He received his Ph.D. in the History of Architecture and Urban Development from Cornell University in 1994, where he completed his dissertation on the role of the spectacle in the production of both form and persona in the architecture of the 1970s. He taught for over two decades, mainly at SCI_Arc, Columbia University, and the University of Limerick, Ireland, where he was a founding member of the architecture program. He is Director of the Network Architecture Lab and co-director of AUDC, entities that are both think tanks and practices, conducting research, producing publications, and exhibitions. Among his books are Blue Monday: Absurd Realities and Natural Histories (as AUDC in 2007), the Infrastructural City: Networked Ecologies in Los Angeles, and Networked Publics. He has exhibited at High Desert Test Sites, the New Museum, the Museum of Modern Art, and the  Contemporary Art Centre in Vilnius, Lithuania. For now, he is taking a very long leave of absence from teaching to focus on art, sound, and cultivating native plants.
