Homeland Security celebrates the end of 2012 with an exhibition by Kyle Evans. During his time earning a MFA at The School of The Art Institute of Chicago, Evans helped pioneer the Glitch Art movement. While his educational background was focused toward experimental music and sound art, his collective artistic work ranges from music technology development to multimedia installation. He has invented many electronic musical and video instruments ranging from studio-based synthesizers and performance-based computer interfaces to electronic modifications and augmentations to acoustic instruments. His performances and installations commonly explore the relation between modern and obsolete technologies, breaking and repurposing, and the dialogue between performer and technology. Evans recently showed at the Dallas Museum of Art where he performed in association with the Dallas Video Festival, his performances range internationally from Paris to Vancouver and has been published in many journals including Popular Science Magazine and Hand Made Electronic Music by Nic Collins.

Kyle Evans’ new work for GO at Homeland Security spotlights his practice of using junk technology. He has restricted his use of materials to those that are readily available in the studio. The resurrection of this ‘e-waste’ as a medium is centered on a dialogue that the artist wishes to have concerning the “Dirty New Media” movement in Chicago. There will be a live performance of his work at 8:30pm on the opening night of GO and an installation will be on display throughout the month of January.
