Christopher Baker

My work examines the complex relationship between society and its technologies. Originally trained as a scientist, my artistic practice represents an uneasy balance of eager technological optimism, analytical processes, deep-rooted skepticism and intuitive engagement. As technologists make daily promises to improve our lives by uniting our physical and digital worlds, I attempt to make work that reflects upon the practical implications of our increasingly networked lifestyles. With these interests at heart, my large-scale video projections, participatory practices and multi-media installations often fuse existing physical spaces with our disembodied, yet poetic, digital ephemera, resulting in revelatory and sometimes disorienting forms.
