Micha Eden Erdész







Micha Eden Erdész (° 1975, CANADA) is an Intermedia artist and graduate of Chelsea College of Arts currently living and working in the Dedham Vale, AONB, England.

The Darkride; vertical rides; the ravine.

A singular cymbal remains in the same spot on the floor behind the bottom of the stairs; the massive weight of an underfloor safe door remains always open and always empty.

This is a fragment of suburban visions of Toronto of my childhood from the carpeted basement of a Downsview split-level house with a blue door, a redundant home bar partially stocked by random liquors, and beverages.

Adorning the edge of a nether-land of actual and imagined places, infected by altered consciousness[es], mutability and disappearance, I am guided by a desire to traverse interior and exterior worlds as much as diverse media.

Engaging with Intermedia creation as an aesthetic kind of anchorite technology, my work points to a subaltern layer of knowledge; some which may or may not be culture.
