Colby Parsons is a sculptor and ceramics professor living in Denton, Texas, where he runs the ceramics program at Texas Woman's University. Colby's work investigates the boundary between materiality and the temporal qualities of digital media. Colby is interested in the perceptual alterations that occur when static sculptural forms are "animated" by video or audio integrated into the work. Colby's work has been shown in a variety of places including the Orange County Center for Contemporary Art in California, The International Ceramic Research Center in Denmark, the University of Pennsylvania Art Museum, and in Dallas at the Craighead Green Gallery, the Pawn Gallery, and 500X. He also created a site-specific installation for the 2010 Taiwanese Ceramic Biennial at the Taipei County Yingge Ceramics Museum.
