ABOUT

F. C. Zuke creates experiences for people. These experiences involve sound, video, light (or darkness), and unique opportunities for visitors to interact with each other, objects, interfaces, and spaces. He utilizes emergent technologies to create works that respond to viewers, that give the audience control, and that seem to have agency themselves. These interactions often cause visitors to question the impact that their actions have on particular systems, such as systems of power, control, evaluation, classification, or epistemology. Art and music organizations in the United States, Europe, and Asia have performed and exhibited his works.

“In my work, I want to put people inside of a system; a system that is alive, moving, and listening or watching or waiting to see what the visitors are going to do. I think by setting up such scenarios, my audience not only sees a system represented, but they also experience it. They literally see and hear and feel how it reacts to their presence. And I think this visceral nature of my work makes the interaction with these systems more memorable and makes the presence of these systems more recognizable when they appear in the world.”
