An open-source approach to tools, technologies and media remains a cornerstone of Theo. A. Artz’s creative work. A fine arts background melds with interests in science, technology, cognitive psychology and game theory to affect curious kit bashings of concepts, percepts, and art making processes. His productions are often influenced by artifacts resultant of commingling analog and digital production strategies and conceits.
Beyond his professional history of animation and visual effects work, Artz has continually concentrated on creation of tangible studio art and installations; physical works inspired by mixed technologies, experimental storytelling strategies, and a life-long philosophical fascination with serialized collectibles. His art constructions subtly allure viewers to decrypt the work’s embedded narratives, meanings, and playful interrelationships.
