Patterns Beneath the Surface
Foster will be speaking about newer pieces from her body of work including her most recent, The Alchemist Husband, which is being shown at the SAAG in February.
Tori Foster is an Ontario based media artist whose work centres on emergent behaviour and the urban landscape. Heavily process oriented, very little of Foster's work is a direct representation of the environments and phenomena she captures. Instead, she treats captured imagery as data and re-presents it to expose alternate information inherent to, but not visible in, the original dataset.
Foster is the recipient of dozens of awards, grants, and commissions including five Canada Council for the Arts Grants, a Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council Grant, and Best Canadian Feature at Inside Out Film Festival in Toronto. She has shown work in 16 countries world-wide, including Germany, India, Korea, Australia, Brazil, and the U.S., and has spoken in cities across North America including Los Angeles, Chicago, Philadelphia, Victoria, and Toronto. Foster is a former Assistant Professor and Head of Video/Digital Art at California State University, Northridge, and is currently represented by Pari Nadimi Gallery in Toronto, Canada.
