Ed Osborn is a sound and media artist who has performed, exhibited, lectured, and held residencies in the United States, Canada, Europe, Australia, and South America. His sounding artworks take many forms including installation, sculpture, radio, video, performance, and public projects. They demonstrate a visceral sense of space, aurality, and motion combined with a precise economy of materials. Ranging from rumbling fans and sounding train sets to squirming music boxes and delicate feedback networks, Osborn’s kinetic and audible pieces function as resonating systems that are by turns playful and oblique, engaging and enigmatic. Osborn has received grants from the Guggenheim Foundation, the Creative Work Fund, Arts International, and Meet the Composer, and been awarded residencies from the DAAD Artists-in- Berlin Program (Berlin), the Banff Centre for the Arts (Banff, Canada), Het Apollohuis (Eindhoven, Netherlands), STEIM (Amsterdam), the McColl Center for Visual Art (Charlotte, NC), the Headlands Center for the Arts (Sausalito, CA), and the Center for Research and Computing in the Arts at UC San Diego. He has performed and exhibited at the singuhr-hörgalerie (Berlin, Germany), ZKM (Karlsruhe, Germany), the Berkeley Art Museum (Berkeley, CA), Yerba Buena Center for the Arts (San Francisco), Artspace (Sydney, Australia), Sonambiente Festival (Berlin, Germany, Galerie DARE-DARE (Montréal, Quebec), MassMOCA (North Adams, MA), the Institute of Modern Art (Brisbane, Australia), the Auckland Art Gallery (Auckland, NZ), and the Sonic Arts Research Centre (Belfast, Northern Ireland).
