Troy-Briggs-9363

Troy Briggs works with technology and sound and everyday objects to create subtle interventions in public and private space. These moments, ranging from audio jacks that connect the listener to far-away white noise and single, bare light bulbs that tap out morse code messages sent from across the world, speak to delicacy of human connection though the simplest of means.

Briggs has exhibited widely in Chicago and Portland, Oregon, including Shane Campbell, Chicago; Rontoms, Portland, OR; A+D Gallery, Chicago; and 6018 North, Chicago, IL. He teaches in Contemporary Practices at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago and sculpture, sound and new media at Cathege College.
