3 Questions with Dennis Svoronos of Artist Operation

Welcome to “3 Questions with …”, a recurring feature on the Career Center blog. We’re asking alumni of all graduation years and career interests to share a bit of their experiences and advice. 

Dennis Svoronos is an SMFA alum, artist, teacher and business owner.  He is represented by Boston Sculptors Gallery and has his own website here.

1. In just a few sentences, please tell us about your current work.

My current work is rooted in technology and exploration; using my practice as a lens to observe and understand the world around me. My latest focus has been building wearable brain scanning sculptures that use your brainwaves to create music, images and animations depending on the work.

2. How did your time at the SMFA influence your career journey?

The SMFA gave me the freedom and access to see potential of many media, I attribute much of the interdisciplinary way I practice to the interdisciplinary nature of  the school. I could weld, make prints and perform in the same week.

  1. What advice would you offer to a student who wants to pursue a career path like yours?

Learn everything you can, and be passionate about what you do. Build and maintain your community during and after your undergraduate degree. Your peers are one of your greatest assets
