Clint is an Edmonton based multi media artist and founder of Integrated Wilderness Systems, a platform for the development and dissemination of critical thinking around neo-ecologies, post natural wilderness and natural resource management. Manifest as immersive mechanical installations, creative survival gear and photographic fictions he uses photography, video, sound light and kinetics to construct immersive environments that reflect upon states of wonder, transformation and transcendence. He has resided and practiced in Edmonton for the past 28 years since graduating from the University of Victoria with an MFA. He has produced exhibitions for galleries, found sites and Artist-Run Centres both here across Canada and the United States, most recently at the Art Gallery of Chelsea in New York City, the Kala Art Institute in Berkeley, California and the MCA in Chicago, and participated in professional artist residencies worldwide. His fascination with late Victorian idealism, the life of William Morris and the implicit nature of wilderness as a site for wonder has led his recent work to a re-imagining of the subversive potential of utopian ideologies, examined within the rarefied spaces of art, to reform contemporary life.
