Chris Myhr is an interdisciplinary artist working with sound, the moving image, photography, electronics, and media installation. His work explores intersections between art, ecology, and science - with an emphasis on embodied experience, materiality, and practices of “deep listening” (and looking).
From 2012 to present, he has been developing a body of work titled Point-Line-Intersection which examines the complex interrelationships and entanglements between humans, nonhumans, and the hydrosphere: the tension between water as a medium of 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.
He is based in Hamilton, Ontario, and is a professor in the Department of Communication Studies & Multimedia at McMaster University.
