Zander Porter is an artist, performer, and curator from Los Angeles. Zander's moving image and liveness work develops from interest in social and collective vs. “individuated” identity- or persona-based investigation. Both social and (dis)embodiment researches focus on virtual and physical spaces of sexual and nonsexual roleplay, including online reality TV competition games, MMOGs, and (anonymous) (cam)sex, among others. Zander graduated with high honors in Art Studio from Wesleyan University in 2017 with additional attentions in Computer Science and Performance Studies and works in and outside of Berlin individually/collaboratively as well as part of XenoEntities Network.
