is a neo-cave painter and transdisciplinary installation artist whose work engages spectacle at the crossroads of waste culture and the surveillance state. He serves as an assistant professor of Critical Art Practices and Co-Director of the Expanded Media Lab at Florida State University. There, he is also a member of the Immersive Media Research Group.

Currently, he is teaching remotely while working as the first "Collections Artist in Residence" at the Museum für Naturkunde in Berlin.

Tra is especially interested in expanding my awareness of current conversations in this area of spatial aesthetics and artificial environments that are happening internationally, so the opportunity to join your group is perfect for me at this time.
