Michael Oatman calls his practice “the poetic interpretation of documents.” His collages and installations integrate thousands of found, modified, and handmade components, including artifacts of material culture, painting, drawing, video, and food. These architectural “unvironments” have been installed at museums, public spaces and private homes. His installations are “context-specific,” and demand from him a total immersion into physical location, sonic/haptic realms, local history and the personal stories of those he encounters while working.
