Steve Gurysh is an artist who works fluidly between sculpture, time-based media, and site-specific gestures to explore environmental systems, machinic behavior, and geological contexts. His research compresses expansive narratives into potent objects and experiences containing wild materialities and speculative relationships to time. His project-based works are often developed in collaboration and correspondence with scientists, engineers, other artists, and non-human participants.

He has been the recipient of numerous awards, including residencies at the Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts, the WATERSHED+ Dynamic Environment Lab and a fellowship at the Frank-Ratchye STUDIO for Creative Inquiry. He has exhibited works at Contemporary Calgary in Alberta, Canada; the Knockdown Center in Queens, New York; W139, Amsterdam; El Museo de la Ciudad, Quer‌‌étaro, Mexico; La Soci‌ét‌é des Arts Technologiques, Montréal; The Engine Room, Wellington, New Zealand; and in the center of the Allegheny River.

Gurysh is an Associate Professor of Sculpture in the Department of Visual Art at the University of Kansas in Lawrence, KS.
