Another 100 Colorado Creatives: Tobias Fike

#82: Tobias Fike

Nebraska native Tobias Fike, now working in Colorado after earning his MFA at the University of Colorado Boulder, isn't tied down by a particular medium or discipline -- or even a particular place. Instead, he manipulates concepts, makes sculpture and video, launches performances, collaborates and, with the Flinching Eye Collective, creates soundscapes, here and abroad. But all of his work revolves around a personal and human core; like a boy with a box of conceptual LEGOs, he expresses the essential using the tools at hand. Fike's 100CC questionnaire follows.

KEEP WESTWORD FREE... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
Susan Froyd started writing for Westword as the "Thrills" editor in 1992 and never quite left the fold. These days she still freelances for the paper in addition to walking her dogs, enjoying cheap ethnic food and reading voraciously. Sometimes she writes poetry.
