He received a BFA from the Ruskin School of Drawing and Fine Art at the University of Oxford, and an MFA from Hunter College. In the 1990s, Herring became known his for hand-knit Mylar and tape sculptures and has since moved into video and performance work involving chance and unpredictable encounters with strangers.
