Bernie Lubell's interactive installations have evolved from his studies in both psychology and engineering. As participants play with his whimsical wood machines, they become actors in a theater of their own imagining.

Since the early 1980's his installations have been shown nationally. Lubell's work includes a stone age digital computer, a rainstorm of chaos and nostalgia, a phone booth-confessional communications network, simulations of the human heart and brain and a cooperative knitting machine.

Mr. Lubell has received a Guggenheim Artists Fellowship in 2011, an Adolph & Esther Gottlieb artists grant in 2009, an Award of Distinction from Ars Electronica in 2007, Pollack Krasner Foundation Grants in 2002 and in 1991, had a residency at the Tryon center for the Visual Arts from January- March 2002, an Individual Artist Grant from The ArtCouncil, S.F. for the year 2001, an Artists Fellowship from the California Arts Council in 1996, a residency at the Liberty Science Center with Paul DeMarinis in Jersey City N.J. in 1995, a residency at the Headlands Center for the Arts, Sausalito, Ca. in 1993, and an Artists Project Grant (w/ Paul DeMarinis) from the NEA in 1991.
