ARTIST IN RESIDENCE – Oliver Hutchison

Oliver Hutchison is engaged in an exploration of the interconnectedness of the human and nonhuman and the relationship between human activity, ecology, time and space. Working across a deliberately diverse set of media incorporating photography, video, sculpture, sound and interactive machine making he creates works which aim to break down and invert the distinctions between artist, artwork and audience.

The unpredictability that arises from the complexity of human relations with the nonhuman is central to Oliver’s investigations and by outsourcing his hand into the unpredictable activities of living organisms, the environment and technological processes Oliver is directly engaged with chance as a means to undermine the notion of human self-sufficiency and moral self-determination.
