Announcing our new SVAD Studio Artist in Residence!
Curtis Tamm (b. 1987) is a media artist with a current practice in sound art. Tamm creates audio-libraries with recordings from geologically active countries such as Iceland, Greece, and Japan, which he uses to interpret and investigate the human potential to sense and process sounds when removed from their environments. He received his MFA in design and media arts from the University of California—Los Angeles in 2014. His debut solo exhibition, spelling for the protection against oneself, is currently on view at the Mori Art Museum in Tokyo, Japan.
While here Tamm will work with participants at the SVAD Studio at Stormwater Studios and gather sound recordings in order to deep-listen to the boundary line of urbanization, as part of the Nature, Ecology, and Environment residency session.
