Kyle McKinley’s art and activism are focused on community-based appropriate technologies. For the past five years that has taken the form of working in organizations that teach people to maintain their bicycles.

Kyle completed a double major in Sculpture and World Literature at UC Santa Cruz. At that time his artworks were installations that offered embodied equivalents to Post-Structuralist theory.

More recently Kyle’s has made ‘zines that appropriate the idioms of early twentieth century children’s literature to form social commentary. These publications, the art-objects that accompany them, and any future works are rooted in radical collaboration.
