Tori Foster is a new media artist working across interactive, robotic, lens-based, and installation arts. Seeking the invisible informants of our lived experiences, she explores the areas of emergent behaviour, neurodivergence, and quantum consciousness. Much of her work literally or metaphorically describes things we cannot see with the naked eye but can none-the-less intuit or experience viscerally.
Foster earned an MFA and a BFA from Ryerson University in Toronto, Canada. She is the recipient of dozens of grants and awards including two current grants from the Canada Council for the Arts and the Ontario Arts Council to produce “Conversations with Fate”, a generative performance piece exploring the emergent behaviours of a herd of autonomous robots. Her work has been presented in 18 countries world-wide including Germany, India, China, Australia, Guyana, Brazil, and the USA, and is held in numerous private and corporate collections.
