Ortiz-Torres has produced everything from feature films, 3D videos, and performances to paintings, sculptures, and kinetic installations—all of which relate to the subjective perception of the world. “Our identities are fluid and ever-changing,” he says. “The human cognitive process is an unstable constellation of webs, fusions, and hybrids.”

About Rubén Ortiz-Torres
Though Rubén Ortiz-Torres’s interests and techniques have varied widely over the course of his career, they always reflect the environments that have shaped his identity. Ortiz-Torres has produced such diverse works as feature films, 3D videos, paintings, sculptures, kinetic installations, photo-collages, and performances, all having to do with his personal experience of the world. “Our identities are fluid and ever-changing,” he once said. “The human cognitive process is an unstable constellation of webs, fusions, and hybrids.” Though he was trained as a realist painter, he became known in the 1980s as a photographer and printmaker influenced by Mexico City’s punk scene. He attributes the more recent proliferation of cars in his work to experiences in Los Angeles and a childhood affinity for models.
Mexican, b. 1964, Mexico City, Mexico, based in Los Angeles, California
