Dissonance Productions

Dissonance Productions is a Toronto-based production outfit by trans-discplinary art-ivist Stephen Chen to integrate and consolidate his work in film, photography, music, performance and installation; as well as facilitate collaboration with other artists and external projects.

Stephen’s oeuvre is often allegorical as well as simultaneously deconstruct and hybridize the very forms he works in. Central to Stephen’s work are institutional structures of thought, “invisibility”, introspection and Man’s relationship with his surroundings – be it environment, cities, people, or objects.

Eschewing academic and esoteric expressions, as well as institutional conventions and practices, Stephen seeks to communicate and broaden appreciation of complex ideas and issues immanent in his works through experiments in form and technique (instead of for the sake of itself).
