Hope Hutman (She/Her/They) is an artist, activist, and teacher living in Oakland, CA. Using everyday technology, live stream video, performance and installation, their interdisciplinary practice explores what happens to human autonomy when reality is constructed by brands and government agencies who can predict our choices. Their work assumes that culture creates meaning and that what we make, see, like and engage with shapes what we believe in and the way we understand the world.
Hutman has worked as a researcher/artist-in-residence at the Games and Visual Narrative Lab at NC State University. Their work has been included in the SF Fringe Festival, Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, Williamstown Theater Festival.
