Tabor Robak moved to New York from Portland, Oregon about six years ago, living in a 100-square-foot room in Bushwick before moving westward through Brooklyn. For the past three months, the 29-year-old digital artist has worked in a Williamsburg triplex with a studio setup that looks straight out of NASA. Robak uses programs like Photoshop, After Effects and Unity3D to create densely rendered digital worlds that riff on everyday objects. He’s currently exploring illustrations on transparent screens in the second edition of his work Newborn Baby, which will be shown at Art Basel in Switzerland. Commenting on New York as an essential element of his practice, Robak says, “Being here helps me feel like I’m engaged and connected.”
