Denton Fredrickson (CAN)
Denton Fredrickson’s work invites experiential and contemplative interactions with sound, objects, and architectural space. The seductive lure of both old and new wonders, fantastic inventions, and absurd theories are familiar territories for Fredrickson. He investigates their histories and representations in popular culture through research, collaboration, humour, and the practice of making. His recent interest in the intermingling of traditional, material-based processes with kinetics, electronics, and digital fabrication has led him to explore how speculative fiction can become awkwardly nestled within the everyday.
Denton Fredrickson received his Masters of Fine Arts (Sculpture and Media Art) from the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design in 2003. His work has been exhibited across Canada, in the U.S., the Netherlands, France, Portugal, and Japan. He currently works out of Lethbridge, Alberta where he is an Associate Professor (Sculpture and Media Art) in the Art Department of the University of Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada.
