PHILIP FRYER
Philip Fryer (Born 1981, Boston MA) is a Boston based artist who explores concepts of mortality, chaos and order, the body as a circuit, and the omnipresence of sound. He works primarily in performance but also utilizes noise, video and installation in his work. His recent exploration has been focused on using lo-fi technologies such as circuit bending and cassette tape loops, both as individual pieces and as elements of performances. Philip is a co-founder of The Present Tense, an initiative that has organized 10 performance events since 2005 and has exhibited the work of over 200 artists. He has exhibited his work at The Darling Foundry (Montreal, QC), Grace Exhibition Space (New York, NY), Vertigo Series (Cedar Rapids, IA), Idyllwild Arts Acedemy (Idyllwild, CA), DEFIBRILLATOR gallery (Chicago, IL), The Museum of Fine Arts and 100 Years of Performance Art (Boston, MA). He as also been a member of the boston based dark ambient project TOOMS since 2012.
