Though science has shifted our collective faith from the religious to the empirical, Baiers work reminds us that our understanding of the universe remains imperfect, hindered by personal biases and reactionary instincts. His recent prints and sculptures use the latest technologies – 3D printing, CNC routing, computer farm rendering, etc. – and extensive consultation with astrophysicists, to interrogate our growing reliance on the digital world. Baier’s work is rich with data and research, precision and erudition, yet it is its seductive aesthetic that gives us the greatest sense of reassurance, validating our flawed logic with a false affirmation of our desires.

Baiers work has been presented at the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art, the National Gallery of Canada, the Musée d art contemporain de Montréal and the Musée des beaux-arts du Québec. His works are found in several private and public collections, including those of the National Gallery of Canada, the Art Gallery of Ontario, and the Schwartz Collection at the Harvard Business School.
