Sleeper is a media artist, performer, and maker, whose work humorously ponders an end to capitalism and seriously considers alternative possibilities for picking up the pieces and moving forward. This is a process of oscillating between old and new technologies, between art history and art unlikely, between political and impossible. This effort exploring technology, interdisciplinary collaboration and activist art is toward a practice where works hold up a sense of responsibility not only as statements loaded with critical and political ideals, but as objects and practices which impact our communities and everyday lives.
In addition to works released independently, Sleeper collaborates on noise projects with Huw Webb, and designs technology for interactive installations and large scale instruments constructed with Audrey Lee Love as the duo Robot Vs. Future.
Sleeper teaches at Florida State University and holds an MFA from Simon Fraser University. His installations, books, and videos have shown in festivals and galleries internationally.
