Ian Kline

Ian Kline was born in 1994 in York, Pennsylvania, under the shadow of a twelve foot tall man lifting a barbell spinning in circles above the Veterans of Foreign Wars Memorial Highway. Casting strangers, family, holograms, memories, lovers, and the anxious internal imagination, Kline is writing a paranoid American biography. Working with the world, Ian reflects against the spontaneous to reveal alien textures surrounding the pedestrian inside of a larger historical drama. Through his belief in Absurdist philosophy, he is interested in his relationship to the pulsating landscape, influencing the dreams, nightmares, and hallucinations of the United States and himself - a macro and micro rhythmic scale to sing to a frequency that can be hopeful even in the depths of night.
