About the Artist

Daniel Evans is an interdisciplinary artist working in the expanded field of printmaking. Incorporating rapid prototyping, microelectronics, and virtual reality alongside traditional printmaking and drawing techniques, he employs the languages of folklore, games, and data visualization as forms of speculative world building. Drawing on current research in technology ethics, data violence, and data dignity, his work explores the material impact of digital infrastructures, the intersection of physical and virtual spaces, and the interconnected relationship between the physical and digital self. He completed undergraduate studies at MacEwan University and the Alberta University of the Arts, and holds an MA in Design from the North Wales School of Art and Design and an MFA in Printmaking from the University of Alberta. His work has been included in exhibitions in Canada, the United States, the United Kingdom, Poland, and Finland.
