New Media Artist, Toolmaker
Eric Souther is new media artist who draws from a multiplicity of disciplines, including anthropology, linguistics, ritual, critical theory, and speculative design. I develop software, tools, and code to investigate technological & cultural ecologies. I look for new ways of seeing beyond the seductive qualities of an image, and to find unseen connections that help us understand our digital and non-digital existence.
