Michael McKay

Associate Professor

Mike McKay is an artist and designer currently teaching at the University of Kentucky College of Design. He received his Bachelor's degree in Architecture from the University of Kentucky and Master of Architecture in architecture from Princeton University.  McKay’s work focuses on the intersection of collage, painting, digital media, and large scale, process-driven investigations that explore the relationship between form, material, and perception. His current research POSITIONING explores the power of position in architecture: specifically, how anamorphic projection and perspectival techniques can generate space and challenge our understanding of its form. Current and recent projects range in scale from urban landscapes to buildings that investigate material assembly.  Paintings, mixed media work, and installations have been exhibited in Germany, France, England, Italy and throughout the United States.
