Bill Dolson is an artist, art historian, and computer engineering consultant based in New Mexico. His current artwork is involved with the landscape and often focuses on the atmosphere. His work includes large scale land art pieces that employ dynamic geophysical processes. At a more human scale, he creates light and video projections which provide novel experiences of the landscape. Much of Dolson’s art is informed by his consulting work in the aerospace sector.
Dolson has been creating video and computer animation since the early 1970s. A long-time resident of New York City, his early collaborators were dancers, fashion designers and filmmakers. In subsequent years, he worked to produce immersive installations. From 2006-2007, Dolson was an artist in residence at Eyebeam in NYC.
A former racecar driver and rancher, Dolson is also a pilot.
