Artist Statement
As an Indigenous artist, much of his work interrupts the long-accepted social conventions governing the interpretations of Native Americans in US mass media calling attention to issues of identity and the commodification of indigeneity and spirituality. In his work, he deconstructs these re-appropriated images to challenge and contest the original depictions while examining their original contexts through various digital media editing conventions, re-presentations and satirical juxtapositions. Torry continues to utilize varying editing techniques from datamoshing, digital glitching, to montage repetition (à la Martin Arnold) in his re-appropriated video works, which directly address indigenous issues. His experimental works combine light, layering, various special effects and focus styles, and music or sound landscapes to explore various subject matters.
