XiR is pleased to welcome our latest resident Tristan Sauer.
Tristan Sauer is a New Media Artist and Curator interested in physical computing, wearable technology, and Sculpture. Sauer’s practice is critically focused on technology and capitalism, viewing their relationship as a potential modern-day Pandora’s box. He is interested in the intersections between our digital and physical worlds, and how technology affects the various facets of human existence. Often expressed through his own identity as an Afro-Canadian, Sauer explores these topics through both an Afro-futuristic and Afro-Pessimistic lens.
A graduate of the New Media program at Toronto Metropolitan University, Sauer has presented locally at the Plumb, Meridian Art Centre, Gallery 1313, and Whippersnapper Gallery. He has curated as a member of Long Winter, online through Symbicocene Gallery, and REEL Asian Film Festival, and most recently in-person at Xpace Cultural Centre.
XiR thanks Aaron Kirsch for his generous support of Tristan’s residency.
