John Roach

Last Name: 
First Name: 

John Roach searches for the surprises that occur when visual and aural phenomena are thrown out of synch, when unexpected results are elicited from mundane objects that prefer to be ignored. The materials used vary wildly: from suitcases and old furniture to cheap electronic kits and hardware. Exhibitions include numerous Kenny Schachter exhibitions and in various other group-exhibition venues in Manhattan and Brooklyn, Santa Fe, Philadelphia, San Francisco, and Mexico City. Multimedia projects include numerous sound works to accompany video, a web-based collaborative composition game for multiple artists entitled DICTIONARY and Negative Space, a streaming audio and video web collaboration with Spaceboat TV in Seattle. He has received Finishing Funds awards from the Experimental Television Center.
