Erik Loyer is a digital media artist whose
works explore the intersection of narrative, music and interactivity.
A video game aficionado who is equally comfortable writing code,
poetry and music, Erik creates pieces that exhibit strong tactile
qualities and a unique synergy. His award-winning 1998 Web site
"The Lair of the Marrow Monkey" was one of the
first to be added to the permanent collection of the San Francisco
Museum of Modern Art. In 1999, Erik received a Rockefeller Media
Fellowship to support the development of his episodic interactive
narrative "Chroma," which has been exhibited
across the Americas and won the 2002 Best Digital Creation award
at the Montreal International Festival of New Cinema and New Media.
Erik founded the information architecture division at the Los Angeles
office of Razorfish, and recently developed interactive designs
for the advertising agency Wieden+Kennedy. His Internet art works
