Joshua Johnsons work examines the relations between humans and common objects. He takes inspiration from productivist theories of design, object oriented philosophy, science fiction, and mutant sounds. His objects and installations often twist the inorganic products of capitalist culture, questioning the subject/object dichotomy. In 2011 he was a resident artist at the Fiskars Artist in Residence program in Fiskars, Finland. He has exhibited works at Columbia College Chicago, the Convent of St. Cecilia in Brooklyn, and Riviera Gallery. He received an MFA from Hunter College in 2011 and his BFA from Western Michigan University in 2005 with a double major in Painting and Philosophy.
