Biography

SUMMARY

Tom Stayte, b.1988

Living and working in Sheffield, England, Tom Stayte’s creative practice provides commentary on the role of the individual in post digital culture, presenting a view of a world in transition. Through appropriated photography, installations and books, he gives physical form to our unavoidable interactions with digital entities. Now seemingly omnipresent in our lives, Tom provides perspective on how these enormous structures affect our sense of identity. His work reflects on our inability to comprehend scale, our willingness to trust what we don’t understand and how our desire to be unique ultimately only reveals our similarities.
