Chris Combs: Refactoring 

Art Exhibition: Tuesday, May 9, 2023 - Friday, July 14, 2023 
Artist Reception
Thursday, May 18, 2023, 6 - 8 pm  

Chris Combs’ artworks respond to pressing themes of surveillance, artificial intelligence, and algorithmic failure. He employs a wide range of practices to create circuit boards, software, and enclosures for interactive and time-based wood, metal, and found-object sculptures, which both embrace and question technology. Their custom circuitry is engineered by the artist and hand-soldered with millimeter-scale components. Combs’ sculptures address changes in our built technology environment—changes that often occur before we understand their implications. His artwork makes these macro-scale changes tangible, letting us consider them anew.
