IEA Resident Artist Walker Tufts

The Institute for Electronic Arts (IEA) announces an exciting line up of resident artists in the Fall semester 2024. Walker Tufts make games and sculptures that examine human and more-than-human relationships, especially as they relate to dirt and land.

Walker’s work explores the messy borders between science and storytelling and playfully situates human players in relation to others.  


Walker’s work has been shown internationally including: MassMoCA, Den Frie Udstillingsbygning, VEGA Arts, Schuylkill Center for Environmental Education and Flux Factory. Walker has created commissioned works in Wales, Denmark, Germany, Russia and the United States. Walker received his BS in Art from James Madison University (Harrisonburg, VA, US) and an MFA at University at Buffalo. More at kosmologym.com, walkertufts.com, and dirtytime.us
