Freeka Tet is a French-born, New York City-based digital artist and creative mercenary working in the realm of experimental art. His practice combines objects, prosthetics, animatronics, hacking, coding, electronics, audio & video plunderphonics, bricolage, and performance-based work. Taking inspiration from internet culture, memes, trolls, and irrational social human behaviour, Tet reinterprets the elements he comes into contact with, blurring creative expression with technical execution. His work has been exhibited in museums and galleries such as La Gaité Lyrique, Benaki Museum, Fondation Cartier, Miami Art Basel, GOOGLE IO, Day for Night, the Montreal Art Biennale and more. He often gives lectures and workshops on new media and interactivity for institutions such as the Ecole des Beaux-arts de Rennes and Samsung Creative. Tet has also collaborated with creative minds such as Kyle McDonald, Charlie Lemindu, and Satoru Higa, and has conceived stage or done consulting for musicians such as Childish Gambino, Chromeo, Jackson & His Computer Band and Gesaffelstein. His portfolio of clients includes Microsoft, Nike, Hotel W and Leviʼs, among others.
Freeka is currently active as a creative consultant/designer and is a resident of the BSMT New Media Program at Mana Contemporary.
