Devin Cain

Artist • Teaching • New Media, Theater

Devin Cain is a Chicago-based interdisciplinary artist, filmmaker, and educator.

He received his Bachelor of Art in Cinema Art + Science from Columbia College Chicago and has training in theater and performance. He is a Teaching Artist for the School of Fine and Performing Arts at Columbia College.

His teaching practice focuses on visual literacy, personal language and symbols, and the intersection of genre cinema and existential topics. His studio work utilizes visual and narrative strategies to comprehend an idea through evoking unconscious and transpersonal sensibilities to presenting a new composition of being and awareness. Devin’s films are more about the process of self-authoring and interrogation, exploring and expanding the limits of cinema’s narrative faculties, by having the aesthetic exhibit the behavior of the subject’s psychic reality.
