Everest Pipkin is a drawing and software artist from Bee Caves, Texas, who produces intimate work with large data sets. Through the use of online archives, big data repositories, and other resources for digital information, Pipkin aims to reclaim the corporate internet as a space that can be gentle, ecological, and personal.

Pipkin also studies how physical space is used to hold up the internet. By following landscape as complicated by digital imaging, as well as data center construction, fiber-optic cabling, and power usage, they refuse an internet that ignorant of its own ecological cost.

Pipkin holds a BFA from University of Texas at Austin, a MFA from Carnegie Mellon University, and has shown nationally and internationally at The Design Museum of London, The Texas Biennial, The XXI Triennale of Milan, Minneapolis College of Art and Design, and others. They have completed residencies at Center for Land Use Interpretation, Signal Culture, The Media Archeology Lab, and PLAYA Sumer Lake, and teach and speak regularly, including at Eyeo, School for Poetic Computation, The Victoria & Albert Museum, and Feral Vector.
