Weston Morris is a visual and performing artist and educator. He received his degree from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago where he studied under notable technology artists Doris Vila, Edward Wesly, George Lewis, Ellen Sandor, and Edwardo Kac. Their insight on the endless possibilities of what technology can bring to art inspired Weston to use digital methods as one of the tools he draws on for creative expression. But his love for analog methods such as drawing, “old school” photography, and vinyl recordings is also apparent in much of his work. Weston often uses contemporary ideas in combination with vintage and modern materials and image acquisition.
His artwork has been shown in many gallery exhibits in the Midwest and California and is part of numerous private collections. As a musician, Weston has performed bass and guitar in several Chicago-based bands, including Julia Set and the Mount Airy Ramblers. He is an adjunct faculty member in the Interactive Arts and Media department at Columbia College Chicago.
