Tom Comitta

Los Angeles, CA
ALUMNI ARTIST-IN-RESIDENCE

Tom Comitta is a Los Angeles-based writer and multimedia artist. He is currently working on a novel, The Nature Book, which is made entirely out of nature descriptions from 300 novels; there are no words of his own. During his alumni residency, Comitta plans to continue this project, which he began at Bemis in 2016, by recording it as an audiobook, a sound installation for a future art show, and as material for live collage in collaboration with musicians, building on his ongoing practice in vocal performance and sound poetry. Outside of the recording studio, Comitta will work on his next book, a follow up to The Nature Book, which explores other patterns, apart from nature descriptions, in how we produce fictions.
