CRANBROOK ACADEMY OF ART
Chris Baker is an artist/designer working as an MFA Candidate in 2D Design. He lives with his wife Brittany and cat Tiggy in Ferndale MI. Chris’ work revolves around the articulation and re-articulation of the nuances of religious belief, process, and perception. Specifically, the parts of those things that work naturally, and synthetically. Throughout the last few years, he has worked on some long form design projects and has been working in a variety of different fields, learning odd processes and hanging out with odd people. While he is not in the studio he enjoys bad television, good books and slow motorcycles.
IF THERE WERE NO BARRIERS AND CONSTRAINTS, WHAT PROJECT WOULD YOU WANT TO WORK ON?
If there were no constraints I’d love to create a residency type situation for others to come write, work, and collaborate.
WHAT ARE YOU READING/LISTENING TO/WATCHING?
At the moment I’m reading New Modernism(s) by Ben Duvall, listening to some Weyes Blood, and watching What We Do in the Shadows.
WHO IS SOMEONE YOU LOOK UP TO IN YOUR FIELD?
Recently I have loved listening to interviews with Tal R and looking at Tauba Auerbach’s work, but I’m really just trying to pay attention to the people around me and work in front of me.
