Kindle is a Cincinnati-based visual artist whose lens-based practice involves performance, bookmaking, and sculpture. His work dissects personal questions about human bodies and evolutionary lineage, and our interaction with non-human animals and plants, focusing on recontextualization or mediation of the human by the “other”. Through performative self-documentation and the presentation of peripheral imagery and objects, he presents simulations of other ways of being and feeling and posits hypothetical futures based on propagation of these simulations into reality. Kindles’ tone switches rhythmically between didactic, sensitive, playful, and disarming. His work acts as both a decisive visual essay and a personal diary on reckoning with what it can mean to live as or in a biological body in this diverse and massive ecosystem.
