Biography

Known as a software engineer, composer, and artist, R. Luke DuBois creates visual and sonic works that distill historical eras and cultural phenomena down to a single image or a few seconds of sound or video. DuBois’ collections capture both the zeitgeist and the past, articulating cultural trends in meaningful new ways. For the Democratic National Convention in 2008, DuBois collated into a folio a series of 41 text-based prints resembling the layout of a Snellen eye chart, entitled “Hindsight Is Always 20/20.” Having examined the rhetoric of every successive American president’s State of the Union Address, DuBois determined which words were used most by each president. Devoting one print per president, he stacked the words from most used to least, as well as largest to smallest.
