Barry Anderson’s art and research interests are in the areas of video animation, multi-channel (surround sound) audio, photography and installation art. He is greatly influenced by global pop culture of the mid-20th century and historical experimental cinema.

Anderson’s work is included in the permanent collections of the Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art, the Nerman Museum of Contemporary Art and the Everson Museum of Art, as well as numerous corporate and private collections. His newest project, The Janus Restraint, focuses on boyhood rites of passage, geological evolution and mythic symbology.
