Justin Tyler Tate was born in Canada, grew up in the United States and now lives in Europe. Receiving his Bachelor of Fine Arts from NSCAD University his work combines elements of sculpture, installation, media and performance. Tate’s work is concerned with ideas of space, function and interactivity; he uses traditional methods of construction/fabrication in unconventional ways, altering the purpose of a space and thereby, changing how viewers experience it.
Tate is on the board of directors of Error, a registered non profit organization in Estonia. Error dedicates disused spaces for cultural and social exchange through the design and construction of site specific materials.
Tate teaches workshops on the methodology of available materials, tools and site specificity.
JTT travels abroad to execute performative, site-specific and electronic installations.
