Theaster Gates
Artist
University of Chicago

My art practice is comprised of 3 parts, installation, performance and hospitality. In each of those areas, I use a combination of very low technology outputs combined with live performance. I hope to use sound and video much more extensively and very open to collaborations with technicians interested in outputs for their scientific or technological research. Sound and video manipulation and installation, interactivity and GIS all play substantial roles in my creative processes.
