Steven McInerney (b. Melbourne, 1983) is a multimedia artist combining film, digital projection and sonic composition to create experimental films, expanded cinema and live audiovisual performances. McInerney's work draws upon dichotomous energies, meditating between the sacred and profane. His cinematic work explores psychospiritual tropes and altered perception, often blurring the lines between science and fiction.

His live performances utilise multi-channel projection and real-time feedback systems to exploit the audience's awareness of time within the moving image; pushing the boundaries of perception and the medium itself. McInerney is the founder of Psyché Tropes, a film company and label investigating the synaesthetic intersections between sound and its visual counterpart. He is half of the expanded multimedia project IOME and releases music under the pseudonym Merkaba Macabre.
