Chris Yates is a story-driven artist primarily working with long-term projects that focus on creating a bridge to those on the margins either spiritually, emotionally or physically. Yates graduated with a BA in Screenwriting with an Archaeology minor from Loyola Marymount University in 2016.

In this current body of work – MemWARy – I explore the ideas of deception and failure through the Vietnam War, World War II, and The Iraq War. I document randomly occurring digital artifacts created by the projection of documentaries and footage of these three war periods on 15-year-old expired film. War itself is inherently filled with deception and the digital artifacts randomly created by my projector speaks to the political malice of the time as well as creating a type of digital camouflage that suggests we still might not know the truth. Our memory of war is constantly skewed and they are continually expiring.
