As much civil servant as artist, Don Wilkison’s work is informed by his scientist’s background. As m.o.i. aka The Minister of Information, his art practice is rooted in active experimentation. He varied methods of inquiry are dictated by the question at hand; media-based methods—photography and film—being information rich, are frequently utilized. His civic engagements and sculptural installations lie at the intersection of middle-class economics, progressive politics, and environmental science. Bridges between direct interactions and tangible materials offer connections to deeper, underlying metaphorical implications of the work. The metaphor, rather than the medium, is the message.
