Chris Oakley


Chris Oakley is an artist working in film, digital imaging and installation. His interest in film is motivated by its position as a dominant mass medium, which lends it unique potential to use in opposition to mainstream narratives. His work explores the ways in which technology modifies our experiences of the world; how it acts as a mediating and transforming influence on our consciousness. Direct experience of the world requires validation through recording, editing, and sharing as digital content to achieve a social value.

He has exhibited since the late nineties at cinemas, galleries, and film festivals. His works have been exhibited in shows including ZKM Karlsruhe’s touring exhibition Global Control and Censorship, (2015-2019), Rasterfahndung, Kunstmuseum Stuttgart (2012).
