William Brown left graduate school in psychology to become a photographer in the early 1970s. After receiving an MFA from the University of Florida he helped found the Contemporary Art Center in Atlanta and the studio program at Emory University where he taught for over 40 years. His work merges conventions from photography, film, sculpture, and painting. Mr. Brown has an extensive international and national showing history primarily in video. His current project, Paintings for a Robot, uses film editing techniques to randomly generate merged images intended for future rendering by robotic painting devices.
