About the Instructor:
Dalmer (b. 1984) is a multimedia video and installation artist, and occasional curator living in Toronto, ON. He holds a BFA from the Alberta College of Art and Design, and has participated in exhibitions and residencies across Canada and internationally. He has been involved in a number of artist-run organizations and curatorial projects aimed at the incubation of emerging artists; such as The New Gallery, The Whitehouse, 811, The Roundtable Residency and M:ST. As well as being one of the founders of the 809 Gallery in Calgary. His practice is based within the scientific method, exploring themes of impermanence, the way images are made, the relationship humans have with expanding technology, decaying memory and the passage of time. Through research and process based projects, his work aims to contextualize scientific theory into both multidisciplinary visual and narrative work.
Dalmer is currently part of the Wreck City Collective and the VJ duo VIDEOMANCY.
