Avery Lawrence is a performance artist who lives in New Orleans. He received his MFA focused on studio arts from California Institute of the Arts in 2015. His Pitch Night 2017 entry Data’s All Folks combines technology and politics through the movements of three animated characters. The movements are directed by data culled on the internet and location trackers. Some of the data they interpret includes the frequency of Donald Trump tweets, Dow Jones, and FedEx deliveries in Grand Rapids. The heart of this work raises questions about data, truth, and agency in the face of our contemporary culture.
