Ryan Cherewaty is a media artist from Toronto Canada currently based in Rotterdam. He works mainly in video, CGI and installation. His work is informed by the potential provided by technology in its possibility for celebrating and critiquing contemporary experience. Inspired by the rich contradictions that technology presents, he engages with the relationship of digital media to individual consciousness and social and cultural memory, and how this ecology affects our physical reality. Persistent themes include the paradoxes of modernity, tech as myth and magic, and the dissolving boundaries between the virtual and the real.
