Steven H Silberg is an image-influenced, material-based, process-oriented, cross-media artist with a background ranging from photography to book conservation. Working in image, video, and interactive installation, he engages each medium as a literalist. For him, the structure and process leading to the image is as important as the composition and content. By highlighting the construction of the image, Silberg allows his viewers to both engage the work aesthetically and engage with the technology creating it.
Created in Baltimore, his work has been enjoyed regionally, at venues including Baltimore’s
ArtScape, the University of Maryland, and the Delaware Center for the Contemporary Arts;
nationally, at the University of Texas, Dallas, Missouri State University and Orange Coast College in
California; and internationally at the Third Beijing International New Media Arts Exhibition and
Symposium. Silberg was selected as the Winner of the Washington Post’s 2010 Real Art DC competition and the 2014 IMPRINT artist by Maryland Art Place.
Silberg received his MFA from MICA in 2004 and his BFA from the University of Delaware in 1997. He teaches Foundations courses in Photography, Video, & Digital & Electronic media at UMBC, MICA, and Howard Community College.
