Shayne Ehman born at Athabasca, Alberta on March 11, 1974.
Earliest memories include termites in outdoor washing machine, poking mouse with a stick and seeing canned stew come out, trading gopher tails for jawbreakers, sleeping in a basket of oranges then woken by shotgun blast through the wall, seeing woman with a bloody handprint slapped on her face at the greyhound station, seeing the aftermath of a motorcycle/semi accident (brians on the pavement), digging for clay with my brother and sisters in the ditch by the farm, running away from home with an ice cream pail, tobogganing under barbed wire fence...
About works / performance
I have been exploring all possible creative forms available as they present themselves. Some common threads through the work are the search for enlightenment, intuition, use of metaphors, divination, investigating the nature of reality, ethno botany, ethnomusicology, acoustic ecology, shapeshifting, time travel and 'other assorted experimental elements' .
