“Tom Burtonwood is a self-proclaimed vegetarian. He had mushroom salad for lunch today. He had fish tacos for dinner last night, which I guess makes him more of a pescetarian.

Burtonwood is also a very interesting artist, teacher of things, and facilitator of stuff.

His open source 3d projects have been downloaded and printed internationally, his book arts are in collections at the Metropolitan Museum in New York, at MIT, Yale, and more. He runs a gallery, is a contributor at MAKE magazine, has run a 3d printing shop, and worked on large-scale contemporary and commercial art fairs.

Burtonwood likes rice milk, and telling stories, and listening to stories about interrelated histories, then unfolding how those histories function in relation to each other, to action and activity, to culture and visuality, and to ourselves.

Burtonwood is an Assistant Professor at the School of the Art Institute in Chicago; he’s a really nice guy that I’ve very much enjoyed getting to know over the last 24 hours, and I’m really looking forward to hearing more about his work right now. As should you.”
