Text
Ed Osborn's sound art pieces take many forms including installation, sculpture, radio, video, performance, and public projects. His works combine a visceral sense of space, aurality, and motion with a precise economy of materials. Ranging from rumbling fans and sounding train sets to squirming music boxes and delicate feedback networks, Osborn's kinetic and audible pieces function as resonating systems that are by turns playful and oblique, engaging and enigmatic. Born in Helsinki, Finland, and now based in Oakland and Berlin, Osborn has performed, exhibited, and lectured, and held residencies throughout the United States, Canada, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, and South America. The recipient of many awards including a DAAD Artists-in-Berlin Stipendium and a Guggenheim Fellowship, he served as the Director of SoundCulture 96, a Bay Area-wide festival of the sonic arts of the Pacific region, and is represented by the Catharine Clark Gallery in San Francisco.
