Christopher Deris

Chris Deris is one of the most meticulous artists I’ve ever met, whose work surpasses the facts of the machine: playful, sinister, erotic, and funny. The means to the end are not in a hurry, either. At last year’s Automata, not a few who cranked the handles of his piece “Intimacy Machine” felt the vapors. To quote a local musician, who had to recruit a stranger to crank the other handle, “I was mortified and thrilled… I got that.. I had to blush.”

Look for more of Christopher’s work at this year’s Automata. See more videos of his work here.
