Eric Rannestad is a Montana-based artist making work about the systems and technology that humans use to compartmentalize, measure, and model the natural world. The current work speculates on the infrastructure of the built environment through sculpture, painting, and digital media. References to atmosphere, biodomes, market systems, mapping and modeling suggest that our natural and built worlds are intertwined in a precarious system of control.

Eric received his BA in Studio Art and BA in Economics from Whitman College. He has attended fellowships and residencies at Centrum, Sitka Center for Art and Ecology, the Vermont Studio Center, I-Park, and Shell House Arts among others. Eric works broadly across the design and cartography space, and his projects in these areas continue to be an important influence in his art practice.
