Using the camera obscura as a point of departure, Chris Fraser pursues an experience of light that engages the unseen in everyday phenomena. With a small set of simple tools, he makes room for curiosity, inviting viewers to speculate about the nature of the world and their relationship to it. Chris received a BA in history from the University of California, Davis and an MFA in studio art from Mills College. His work has been exhibited at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, the Vitra Design Museum, Disjecta, Highlight Gallery, and the Palazzo Bembo as part of the 55th Venice Biennale. Chris is a recipient of the Jay DeFeo Prize and was recently awarded a Eureka Fellowship by the Fleishhacker Foundation.
