Will Rogan

Will Rogan is an artist whose work uses the physical world as a sculptural medium to examine its potential for beauty, manipulation, and function in art making. Will, along with artist Jonn Herschend, founded and edits a quarterly periodical in the form of an object called THE THING. Each year, four artists, writers, musicians, or filmmakers are invited to create an everyday object that somehow incorporates text. This object will be reproduced and hand wrapped at a wrapping party and then mailed to the homes of the subscribers with the help of the United States Postal Service. Will Rogan currently lives and works in Albany, California, and is visiting faculty in the San Francisco Art Institute’s New Genres department.
