A pioneer of new media art in the mid-1970s, Tony Oursler, born in New York in 1957, is known for his installation works and video projections that explore the influences of technology on the human mind. Commenting on our compulsive relationship with computers and the cyberspace, the artist conveys the many possible consequences of dependence on technology in his work: obsession, escapism, isolation, and sexual fetish. Through his paintings, installations, performances, and sculptures, he elevates everyday objects to above their mere materiality, which, in turn, impacts on contemporary visual culture. Oursler’s work is in the collections of distinguished institutions such as Tate Britain and Museum of Modern Art.
