Kathy McTavish

Duluth, MN

I am a media composer and installation artist. My work blends data, text, code, sound and abstract, layered moving images. My recent work has focused on creating generative methods for building networked, multichannel video and sound environments. I create cross-sensory, polyphonic landscapes which flow from the digital web into physical spaces.

I have a background in cello performance, mathematics, ecology, music theory and software development. The confluence of these disciplines informs my work as a composer and multimedia artist. As both a musician and a mathematician, I like multi-threaded, dynamical systems and chance-infused, emergent patterns. As a queer artist I am interested in the ways we construct personal stories / myths and the infinite, bendable between.
