Andrés Tapia-Urzua is an electronic media artist who works with video, music and installation. As co-director and co-editor of “When Video Came,” (a historiography of video in the US) he is also committed to the memory of the arrival of video technology as a medium of artistic expression in the US. Born in the US and raised in Chile, his work continually explores the liminality of a cross-cultural, cross-technological identity. His work is a continuous fusing of aesthetic, theoretical, and political issues. Andrés Tapia-Urzua is also a professor and event organizer whose motivating ideology developed under a totalitarian military government in Chile where video was by necessity used as a tool of popular dissent and is now applied in his work in the US.
