ERIK DEERLYCASE FOR PROMOTION AND TENURE
.01

ABOUT

PREFACE

This website was created for the purpose of sharing, as concisely as possible, my work to date as it applies to my case for tenure and promotion to Associate Professor at Indiana University Kokomo. I am including links below to the following recourses:

My Case for Excellence in Research / Creative Work
According to the Humanities Department Promotion and Tenure Guidelines, the standards for excellence by faculty producing creative works state: "the candidate must provide documentation that establishes a record of achievement using the items outlined in 1.2.4.” This is followed with, "Documentation should be provided for approximately 6 to 10 achievements during the period under review for promotion with tenure, with at least three meeting the criteria for excellence as defined in 1.2.4." (3.12.A.b).

In this website, I am including documentation of 20 creative research achievements which merit excellence as outlined in 1.2.4 and which also demonstrate a planned progression towards establishing a national reputation in my area of creative research and practice. Included in these are 12 national juried exhibitions, 2 international juried journal showcases, 5 international exhibitions, and one invited screening of note. During this period, I was also a recipient of an Indiana University New Frontiers of Creativity and Scholarship Grant ($18,500).

Up Next, 1st National Juried Exhibition, NEXT Gallery

Denver, CO

NEXT Gallery is one of the premier co-ops in Denver, recently highlighted in Westword as part of one of the best art districts in Denver, CO. Work from my ongoing series, “Databent,” was selected for inclusion. Early in 2015, my website was hacked: lines of text and image were haphazardly vandalized and replaced by recognizably altered versions of the original. In an effort to regain my illusion of control, I decided to investigate ways of distorting, hacking and redacting my own work. In my “Databent” series, I am the vandal. I employ a text editor to manipulate the raw data behind the original image, altering the code itself and permanently corrupting the file. The resulting random distortions are only revealed to me when the computer attempts to read back the data. Each image in the series is printed as a ChromaLuxe on aluminum.

The series of photographs I call “structures,” (2011-2012) was a cathartic body of work—focusing on the natural world’s reclamation of previously inhabited buildings. My move from a city to a rural area was apparently more of a shock to the system than I could have predicted. My first significant exhibition as assistant professor came out of this work. Jeffery Leder Gallery is located in Long Island City, home to MoMO-PS1, the Noguchi Museum, and the Sculpture Center. Acceptance into a JLG exhibition is an achievement in itself.

My second dissemination opportunity meriting excellence, as outlined by my department’s Promotion and Tenure Guidelines, was the 2012 Annual Juried Exhibit, Delaplaine Visual Arts Center, Frederick, MD. My decision to submit work for consideration was based primarily on the fact that Sue Spaid was the juror. The former executive director of the Contemporary Museum in Baltimore, MD was known for her support for emerging artists, and her willingness to critique works submitted. My two broadsides accepted into the exhibition, "Force" (2011) and "Disclaimer" (2011) came out of a short-lived series which was inspired by the political landscape of the day.
