Charles Sandison

Scotland, 1969. Lives in Tampere (Finland)

Sandison graduated from the Glasgow School of Art in 1993, where he briefly taught after graduating. From 1995 to 2000, he headed the fine art department at the Tampere School of Art and Media in Finland. He produces site-specific computer generated video projections that create immersive data installations, placing the viewer at the centre of a changing universe of words, signs, and characters. Blending references to literature and to biology, the artist creates new grammatical structures, relying upon the narrative tradition in a contemporary context, in which, on the one hand, the most appropriate way to speak about truth is by means of the story and, on the other, the digital medium is transformed into the most expressive form.
