David TOMAS



David Tomas was born in 1950; he lives and works in Montreal. 


Artist, academic and anthropologist, Tomas exhibits his multimedia artwork in Canada, Europe and in the USA. He participated in the Cent jours d'art contemporain de Montréal in both 1985 and 1991. He has written numerous works and articles on intercultural relationships and new technologies, including Transcultural Space and Transcultural Beings, published in 1996. More recently he published The Encoded Eye, the Archive, and its Engine House and A Blinding Flash of Light: Photography between Discipline and Media. Tomas is currently working on an audio-visual project on virtual drawing laboratories based on wireless technology. He also teaches at the École des arts visuels et médiatiques at the Université du Québec Montréal.

Focusing more on photography and new media, Tomas explores the universe of cybernetics and image fabrication, on the frontier of science and anthropology. With a solid foundation in the history of art and technological developments, Tomas’ research makes way for the post-human, supported by the artistic tradition of the 20th Century. Science fiction and the exotic rub shoulders, revealing a world of possibilities alongside human perceptions.
