Rick Farin (°1995) is an artist and director who lives and works in Los Angeles. He graduated from the Cooper Union (2018) with a focus in architecture, where he won the Thesis Prize, and is now a Master's candidate at SCI-Arc. He works with digital design tools -- namely video game engines -- to produce speculative fictions about the Anthropocene, specifically investigating the intersections between technology, materiality, and nature. With a background in architecture and electronic music, his work spans themes of post-humanism, bio-fiction, and speculative archaeology. He has collaborated with artists and labels such as Isamaya Ffrench, Daniel Sannwald, Warp Records, Xander Zhou, Gaika, and Chino Amobi.
