Dylan Gauthier is an artist, curator and educator working at the intersection of new media, socially-engaged art and ecology. His artistic practice takes the form of soundtracks, images, websites, publications, environmental research, and architecture, and documents the residues of temporary occupations, invisible infrastructure, and utopian systems.
