Amay Kataria is a media artist practicing out of Mana Contemporary Chicago. He holds an MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and a Bachelors in Computer Engineering from Virginia Tech. His practice takes a point of departure in the phenomenon of temporality and finds subjects of inquiry in the traditions of timekeeping, philosophy of control, historical archives, and scientific explorations. His works manifest a hybrid reality - within physical and digital materiality. He has previously held new media residencies at Art Center Nabi and Mana Contemporary and will be an artist-in-residence at Sandnes Kommune in Stavanger, Norway in 2021. His work has been shown at Vector, DeConfine, & Piksel festivals, Electromuseum, Hyde Park Art Center, Ars Electronica, Experimental Sound Studio, HangZhou Triennial of Fiber Art, amongst others.
