Daniel Evans

Daniel Evans is a student in Art & Design at the University of Alberta in Edmonton who seeks to adapt the languages of folklore and mythology to explore our evolving relationship with technology. His work focuses on the various forms of our relationship with data and analytics, on how technology impacts our perceptions of the body and the self, and on how these relationships shape and are shaped by various beliefs and value systems. Bringing traditional printmaking and drawing into an expanded field through the incorporation of augmented and virtual reality, 3D modelling, and rapid prototyping, he draws upon hybrid mythological figures and shapeshifters to reflect on the intrinsically connected nature of our physical and digital worlds.
