Scott Benesiinaabandan

Scott Benesiinaabandan (Anishinaabe, born in Winnipeg, Canada; lives in Winnipeg and in Tiohtià:ke / Mooniyang / Montreal, Canada) is interested in technologies and in the exchanges that they make possible between tradition and contemporaneity. Employing photography, sound art, video, and virtual reality, he creates works that are poetic and committed to bringing forth Indigenous cultures and knowledge while debunking the legacies of colonialism. His most recent projects explore the intersections between artificial intelligence and Anishinaabemowin, one of the oldest Indigenous languages in North America.
