Robyn Tomlin is a video artist currently residing in upstate NY, USA. Prior to 2001 she resided in Tokyo for thirteen years where she worked as a freelance broadcast video journalist, documentary maker, television producer, and video artist.
In 1999 she introduced her video art works to the producers of the large outdoor Jumbotron screen at Shibuya station, Tokyo and negotiated for hourly one minute blocks of video art broadcasts. The hourly art broadcasts were successful and the art program continues today under the name of Gallery-Q.
From April 2000 to April 2001 she taped, edited and produced ‘Robyn’s Report’ an art, documentary and commentary program broadcast weekly on Tokyo-Yokohama cable television. Her award winning video art and video sculptures have been presented at festivals, galleries and museums internationally; the Canadian Embassy in Tokyo, The Whitney Museum of Art, NYC, The Tokyo International Video Festival, The Everson Museum of Art, NY, and The Fenimore Museum of Art, NY.
Most recently Tomlin has been developing her video art further in the direction of video sculpture, large scale permanent video installations and video sculpture as part of permanent architectural design. Tomlin received her MFA in Video Art from Syracuse University, NY....
