Eric Dickson (1975 Los Angeles; lives and works in New York and Washington)

My artistic practice explores the frontier between storytelling and installation art, embracing literary, technical, and site-specific challenges: broadcasting fragmentary tales of an epic desert journey from antique wardrobes dispersed around square miles of a real desert, retelling the history of US foreign policy through an audio installation triggered by an array of motion detectors, developing a unique soundscape blending first-person narrations of dreams with scripted dreams constructed from recycled parts.  My installations often involve interactive components, and transform visitors’ perceptions of space around them: galleries, open deserts, desolate streets along a derelict canal.
