Andre Baynes, My Grandfather's Altar, 2020
Andre Baynes is an artist and designer using storytelling, open-source technology, and a range of materials to explore possible futures. His West Indian cultural roots in food, flora, and folklore act as the basis for work that is informed by the complex history of human migration and settlement. Andre’s skill in industrial design, interactive media, and amateur horticulture give him the ability to create works that invite viewers to become immersed in an extensive speculative world. This project is supported by the Career Launcher program from the Centre for Emerging Artists & Designers at OCAD University.
