My name is Nathan Lee Trevino and I hail from a small shipping city in South Texas called Corpus Christi. I’m closing in on the end of my Junior year here in CMU’s Art School. I love to build installations and mechanical sculpture and combine it with video/performance. My work is a little “lite on code” but I feel I use it to add the extra layer to some of my pieces that is so important in the Art world.

A project that I am going to link to is Batteries for My Father. Repayment is a deed as old as the human civilization and I tried to tackle this as I realized I see my choice of artist as one of a kind of narrator of our current culture. Using some video in combination with the small machine, I attempt to give light to my repayment and the feelings that permeate such a simple gesture.
