Keith Tilford is an artist and writer living in New York. Utilizing drawing, 3D modeling and animation his art explores themes from geology, architecture, science fiction and abstraction. His animations have been included in screenings at Speculative Tate (Tate Britain, UK), and his recent research examines the intersections between theories of cognition and experiment, art, the philosophy of scientific models, and the transformation of concepts in modern systems of knowledge.
Presentations of his research include Pratt Institute, NY; Judd Foundation, NY; Montreal Biennale (2014); Künstlerhaus, Halle für Kunst & Medien, Graz; and Newcastle University, UK. His current projects include a graphic novel investigating the convergence of the history of mainstream comic illustration with the histories of modernist abstraction, and Office for Applied Complexity (http://officeforappliedcomplexity.com/), a collaborative platform for research and development that traverses conceptual terrains with an aim to construct new models for work between art, science, technology, and power. This project is an expansion of Fixing the Future (fixingthefuture.info) of which he was also a member.
