Mike Salmond is a digital artist from the UK now based in Chicago, IL, USA. I am currently an Assistant Professor of Time Arts at Northern Illinois University. I received my MFA in Electronic Media from the University of South Florida in 2003. My current research focus is the Art of Videogames, approaching the relatively new medium from an art and social perspective. My recent art work is about travel and our relationship to the exotic nature and fetishization of travel.
