Tristan Sauer

New Media Artist and Curator based in Toronto

Tristan Sauer is a New Media Artist and Curator working with physical computing, wearables technology, and installation work. Sauer's practice is critically focused on technology and capitalism, viewing their relationship as a potential modern-day Pandora's box. He is interested in the intersections between our digital and physical worlds, and how technology affects the various facets of human existence. Often expressed through his own identity as an Afro-Canadian, Sauer explores these topics through both an Afro-futuristic and Afro-Pessimistic lens.

He graduated with honors from the New Media program at Ryerson University and has presented locally at the Toronto Maker Faire, Internationally at NTU in Singapore and The University of Kent in England, and virtually as part of META 2020. He currently curates as a member of Long Winter and online through Symbicocene Gallery.
