Ian Heisters uses dance, installation, and data as media for playing with issues around community, technology, and the body. His installations and performances have shown at local and national venues including Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, Crystal Bridges Museum, CounterPULSE, The Asian Art Museum, and The Berkeley Art Museum. In addition to his personal practice, Ian is a researcher and advisor specializing in performance, digital media, data visualization, and sensor systems for various projects with UC Berkeley, the open source community, and others. This research is complemented by teaching art, design, and programming at Gray Area Foundation for the Arts, and work on a range of commercial projects related to his artistic practice with The Sundance Institute, Stamen Design, Pivotal Labs, and Stimulant to name a few. A native of Northern California, he is based in Berkeley, California, where he tries to spend as much time as possible in the outdoors with his wife and son.
