Dylan Hausthor’s work is an act of hybridity—an effort to render field recordings into myth. Interested in the human threshold between growth and an abyss of lunacy, he looks for stories that are found at the end of dirt roads and in the tops of fir trees. He subscribes to emotional cohesiveness in his work and relies on vignettes, tangents, and tropes of conceptual art in his storytelling.
Hausthor received his BFA with Honors from Maine College of Art and his work has been showcased nationally and internationally by Aperture Magazine, Aint-Bad, Humble Arts, PHMuseum, LensCulture, Gomma, Void, and Nava. He founded Wilt Press in the spring of 2015 and currently works as a cinematographer, bookmaker, photographer, and editor of Wilt Magazine from an island in Maine. He is a current Artist-in-Residence at the Ellis-Beauregard foundation in Rockland, Maine.
