Cristóbal Martínez is an artist and publishing Liberal Arts and Sciences scholar. Martinez has dedicated his career to interdisciplinary collaboration in contemporary art. He positions metaphors to mediate complications within sites of dromological, spatial, social, cultural, political, ecological and economic anxiety. Within these locations, Martinez aestheticizes complexity to generatively engage publics in recovering/connecting knowledge. He has been a member of the interdisciplinary artist collective Post-commodity since 2010, and founded the artist-hacker performance ensemble Radio Healer in 2003. In 2015 Martinez completed his PhD in Rhetoric, Composition, and Linguistics at Arizona State University, and is currently the Chair of Art and Technology at the San Francisco Art Institute.
