David Findlay

David Findlay is a thing-maker grown and ripened in Toronto, Canada; now based in Vancouver, BC, Canada. David’s thing-making usually starts from stories about desire, history, identity, and power… and often ends with putting the incomplete project aside for future fine-tuning. Now that we’re living in the future, perhaps he’ll finish more work.

His approach strives to foreground embodied honesty and his preferred tools/media are whatever permits the right combination of hands-on immediacy with fiddly persnicketiness.

David’s writing can be found in anthologies of smut, science fiction, and queer memoir. His visual art and musical efforts require more searching for.
