Oliver Herring is an artist based in Brooklyn, New York. His works include knitting Mylar, performances, photo sculptures and video.

He makes sets for his videos and performances with minimal means and materials, recycling elements from one artwork to the next.In a recent series of photo-sculptures Herring painstakingly photographs a model from all possible angles, then cuts and pastes the photographs onto the sculptural form of his subject.
