Christopher Baker 1979

born in:
Virginia, United States

Born in 1979, Baker initially trained as an engineer before turning to art to question the social, technological and ideological networks present in our urban landscape. He creates artefacts and situations that reveal and generate relationships within and between these networks. Since completing a Master of Fine Arts in Experimental and Media Arts at the University of Minnesota, Baker has held visiting artist positions at Kitchen Budapest, an experimental media lab in Hungary, and Minneapolis college of Art and Design. He is currently an Associate Professor and chair of the Art and Technology Studies department at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
