Erik Parr is a Reykjavik-based artist originally from Seattle, Washington. His current work could be described as systems art. His recent projects include Third Mind (2013), a large scale, generative video installation combined with live musical performance; One Hundred Thousand Landscapes (2011), a multi-channel sound installation that creates a perpetually evolving sonic landscape from an online database of over 100,000 sound samples; and Vital Interchange (2009), a sculptural sound and light installation assembled from obsolete vacuum tubes into an audio-reactive light sculpture.
He received a BFA in the Digital Arts and Experimental Media (DXARTS) program and a BA in Comparative History of Ideas.
