Statement: Tori Foster is a Los Angeles-based conceptual artist whose work centers on emergent behaviour and the urban landscape. Heavily process oriented, very little of Foster's work is a direct representation of captured environs. Rather, captured imagery is treated as data, subjected to a series of actions, and re-presented to expose alternate information inherent to, but not visible in, the original dataset. Foster was recently nominated for the Leopold Godowsky, Jr. Color Photography Awards at Boston University and has shown work in 16 countries world-wide, including Germany, India, Korea, Australia, Brazil, and America.
