Chris Wood’s art crosses and combines the mediums of sound, theater, dance, text, projections, and social practice. In performance he combines physical and emotional experience with movement, theater, and custom analog and digital electronics to create situations of emotional and social renegotiation. His work asks questions like: How do the vibrations of sound effect our social situation? What effects does screen-based sociality have on our physical presence and community awareness?
