Andrew Elijah Edwards is an artist and actor focused on digital media, animation, and theatrical performance, whose work is a dreamscape of unknown lands, divine rituals, and first contact, exploring a hidden language inside and between all things through the playful and the sublime. Andrew works in both digitally animated virtual worlds and physically with the body through dance and performance, exploring the blending of acting, movement, and virtual landscapes. "There is a language inside and in-between all things communicating in a space beyond language and my work inhabits and navigates this place." Andrew received his MFA in Emergent Digital Practices from the University of Denver in 2014 and has been exhibiting work and performing on stage theatrically throughout the country from Santa Fe to Maine. Andrew runs IMAGINARIUM Creator Camp, a storytelling, art, and acting experience where campers live inside of their own drawn and painted worlds through a group movie making project using greenscreen. Through a variety of venues, Andrew brings his fascination with existence and imagination to facilitating a growth environment for people of all ages and abilities to explore channeling the imaginal.
