RYAN TRECARTIN (USA) is an artist and video maker creating absurdist based works. His video work speaks on the digital environment and the resulting human nature that it produces.

Trecartin is one of the first modern Absurdist Video Artists to be accepted into high brow museums, while at the same time staying grounded in the digital culture by uploading all of his works online to YouTube and Vimeo.

Ryan Trecartin has established a singular video practice that in form and in function advances understandings of post-millennial technology, narrative and identity, and also propels these matters as expressive mediums. His work depicts worlds where consumer culture is amplified to absurd or nihilistic proportions and characters circuitously strive to find agency and meaning in their lives.
