Con Christeson


I am an artist who works in community. I explore and experience community by observing people and the pools of knowledge and experience that exist there.  Historical rootedness is part of this complex concept of place. A topographical map of winds, weathers, and time. The science of hard scape. Then come the layers of memory and story in the vessel that holds people, space, and place.
Community can reinforce or bury the human experience.  Arts collaboration in community supports creativity, consciousness, and co-creation. I work locally, nationally, and internationally around and between those virtual lines we draw on the surface of our planet. They are not real, and yet, they slow us, confine us, stop us, turn us away from each other.

Art turns us towards each other.

Art serves.
