Using heavy materials demands to craft awkwardly intimate social collaborations, Christopher Robbins works on the uneasy cusp of art and international development, creating sculptural interventions in the daily lives of strangers.

He built his own hut out of mud and sticks and lived in it while serving as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Benin, West Africa, spoke at a United Nations conference about his cross-cultural digital arts and education work in the South Pacific, and has lived and worked in London, Tokyo, West Africa, the Fiji Islands, and former Yugoslavia. He has exhibited at the National Museum of Wales, PERFORMA 07, Nikolaj Kunsthallen/ Copenhagen Contemporary Art Center, and been awarded residencies/ fellowships from Skowhegan, MacDowell Colony, Haystack, Penland, and Anderson Ranch, among others.

His collaborative project the Ghana Think Tank has recently been shortlisted for the Frieze Foundation Cartier Award, 2010.

The Institute for Infinitely Small Things is a performance gropup with a varied and open membership. It conducts creative, participatory research that aims to temporarily transform public spaces dominated by non-public agendas. Using performance and conversation, they investigate social and political "tiny things".

These have included corporate ads, street names, and post-9/11 security terminology. The Institute markets dissent through its research reports in the form of maps, books and videos.

The Yes Men agree their way into the fortified compounds of commerce, ask questions, and then smuggle out the stories of their hijinks to provide a public glimpse at the behind-the-scenes world of business. In other words, the Yes Men are team players... but they play for the opposing team.
