Chris Myhr is an interdisciplinary artist working with sound, the moving image, photography, electronics, and media installation. Recent works deploy surround-sound technology and cartographic research to generate immersive listening environments that explore relationships between sound, embodied experience, and space.
From 2012 to present, he has been developing a body of work entitled Point-Line-Intersection which examines the complex interrelationships between culture and the Earth’s hydrosphere: the tension between water as life, vitality, and industry, as well as a source of immense and unpredictable destructive power.
Myhr completed undergraduate studies at Simon Fraser University, and the University of Lethbridge, before finishing graduate work at NSCAD University in Halifax, Nova Scotia. He is currently based in Hamilton, Ontario, and is a professor in the Department of Communication Studies & Multimedia at McMaster University.
