Tori Foster is a new media artist seeking to extract the invisible from the visible. She works in the areas of emergent behaviour, neurodivergence, and the nature of consciousness and reality. Much of her work literally or
metaphorically describes things we cannot see with the naked eye, but none-the-less can intuit or experience viscerally.
Foster earned an MFA and a BFA from Ryerson University in Toronto Canada and is currently an Assistant Professor in New Media at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. She was previously based in Los Angeles California as Assistant Professor and the
Head of Video/Digital Art at California State University, Northridge.
She has received dozens of grants and awards including two current grants from the Canada Council for the Arts, and the Ontario Arts Council for the production of Conversations with Fate, a generative performance piece exploring the emergent behaviours
of a herd of autonomous robots. Her work has been presented in 16 countries world-wide, including Germany, India, China, Australia, Brazil, and the USA, and is held in numerous private and corporate collections.
Foster is based in the USA and Canada.
