Tristan Duke

Tristan Duke is a Los Angeles-based artist with a special interest in light, optics, illusion, and visual perception. Using innovative approaches to materials, craft and technology, Duke explores visual ways of knowing—building his own cameras, optical devices, and interactive installations to create new perspectives. His highly interdisciplinary approach has led to collaborations with a wide range of artists, scientists, and community members.

A long time Fellow at the Museum of Jurassic Technology, Duke is an expert in the history of photographic process and holography. As an inventor, Duke has pioneered numerous holographic technologies, including hologram vinyl records. He has created original hologram artwork for many albums and soundtrack releases, earning him a Clio Award and wide acclaim with his work being featured on the Tonight Show, in Rolling Stone, Forbes, The Verge, Gizmodo, and many more. He is co-founder of the Optics Division, a collective devoted to recontextualizing photography as a land-based medium and social practice.

He has lectured and exhibited internationally including at LACMA, MASS MoCA, The Santa Fe Institute, The Exploratorium, The George Eastman Museum, Les Rencontres d’Arles, Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe, Hamburg, C/O Berlin, and many others.
