Dan Winter is an interdisciplinary artist whose work probes the human connection through conceptual devices and alternative modes of engineering for art-making applications under his art practice, Red Currant. By structuring his practice as an art/tech company, Winter can experiment extensively on projects that aid in art making, create exoteric value, and most importantly, bring humans together.
In addition to starting his own art/tech company, Winter produces music and DJ’s under the moniker DJ Danimal. Seeing live music events as a space for people to release animalistic impulses, Danimal utilizes coarse and primal sounds made from hacked and DIY instruments, sampled animal videos, and other experimental recording techniques to create the instrumentation in his house/techno influenced music.
Winter is natively a ‘Yinzer’ from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania where he received his BFA in Photography from Point Park University. He has recently graduated from George Washington University with his MFA.
