Welcome to the Konstfack Common Seminar with Ed Osborn, LONGFORMANTS: WORKS IN SOUND, SITE, AND IMAGE

Ed Osborn presents his work in sound installation, video, and performance, including site-specific and extended duration pieces. He will discuss strategies for thinking systemically in making work intended to hold attention over long periods.

Ed Osborn works with many forms of electronic media including installation, video, sound, and performance. His works are complex resonating systems which combine a clearly focused sense of space, aurality, and motion with a precise economy of materials. He has presented his work at SFMOMA (San Francisco, CA), the singuhr-hörgalerie (Berlin, Germany), the Berkeley Art Museum (Berkeley, CA), Artspace (Sydney, Australia), the Institute of Modern Art (Brisbane, Australia), ZKM (Karlsruhe, Germany), Kiasma (Helsinki, Finland), MassMOCA (North Adams, MA), the Yale University Art Gallery (New Haven, CT), and the Sonic Arts Research Centre (Belfast, Northern Ireland). Osborn has received grants from the Guggenheim Foundation, the Creative Work Fund, and Arts International, and been awarded residencies from the DAAD Artists-in-Berlin Programme, the Banff Centre for the Arts, Het Apollohuis (Eindhoven, Netherlands), STEIM (Amsterdam), and EMPAC (Troy, NY). He has a BA from Wesleyan University (Middletown, CT), an MFA from Mills College (Oakland, CA), and is Associate Professor of Visual Art and Music at Brown University (Providence, RI).
