Biography

Rindon Johnson is increasingly known for his poetry, writing, and artistic practice over the past five years. In his multidisciplinary art practice—Johnson largely works in media art and VR—he often explores themes of identity and global socio-environmental concerns. Works such as the single channel video I First You (11/11) (2018), commissioned by Daata Editions, and the VR work Meat Growers: A Love Story (2019), commissioned by Rhizome and Tentacular 2019, navigate the space between the physical and digital worlds, the imagined and the real. Notions of the self are cast through the lens of romance, nostalgia, and science fiction to create a radical new world that is both dystopian and utopian.
