Michael Trigilio is a multimedia artist living in San Diego. His works in film, sound, performance, and tactical-media have been exhibited at the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego, the LA County Museum of Art (LACMA), the Contemporary Museum in Baltimore, and Southern Exposure in San Francisco among many others.
Michael's collaborative public-media project Neighborhood Public Radio (with artists Lee Montgomery and Jon Brumit) was included in the 2008 Whitney Biennial and in residencies at Headlands Center for the Arts in 2007 and the Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) in Los Angeles in 2011. In 2013 he developed Project Planetaria with astrophysicist Adam Burgasser and artist Tara Knight focusing on interpreting stellar-data through performance, sound, and media-work.
Since 2013 Michael has been producing Tell Them Everything / Remember Us (T2ERU), using virtual-reality, LIDAR, 4K cinema, and stereoscopic strategies. T2ERU is a suite of multimedia works which play with the wisdom, folly, and neurotic obsession found in the discourse of interstellar memory.
Michael's musical project, Starvelab, released a tape of modular synthesizer music on Rita Records in 2014.
Michael is faculty in the Visual Arts Department at UC San Diego and where he teaches courses in Media Arts and Sound at UC San Diego. He can be found on Twitter @starvelab, on facebook at facebook.com/michael.trigilio, on instagram @starvelab, and on vimeo at vimeo.com/starvelab
