“An entrepreneur with an eye on the future’s future, Ethan Bach and his crew specialize in experimentation with digital media and virtual reality — projected in domes, across walls and on interactive screens — in his search for the next big thing in visual technology. And as the guiding light at two startups — the media studio Alt Ethos Ltd. and Denver Arts + Technology Advancement, a nonprofit that provides residencies for new-media artists — Bach is interested in connecting with audiences through mind-blowing imagery and technological tricks of light. Catch him if you can, as he answers the 100CC questionnaire.”
I am honored to be recognized as Westword’s 100 Colorado Creatives 4.0. I moved to Denver three years ago to start two organizations – Alt Ethos and Denver Arts + Technology Advancement (DATA). Colorado has been incredibly welcoming through both the creative and business communities. Since moving I have shown work at RedLine, taught k-12 arts education through Think 360 Arts, and have received several recognitions for Alt Ethos. My hope is to become more involved with urban planning design, public and private organizations, and leave my mark on Colorado envigorating the creative economy through DATA and Alt Ethos.
Some of my favorite quotes:
Westword: What (or who) is your creative muse?
Ethan Bach: My current creative muse is the vision of a humanity with a bright future. I am driven by the idea that humans are in a state of evolution. I participate in the exploration of human communication through using creative technology in ways that expand connection and consciousness.
Which three people, dead or alive, would you like to invite to your next party and why?
To live in the now, and to create a possibility, I would like to invite Elon Musk, Oprah Winfrey and the Dalai Lama to my next party. I think we would have a great time hanging out, telling stories about the past, present and future. Also, I have questions for each of them. For instance, the Dalai Lama stated in an interview I recently watched that he might not reincarnate again. Is he really serious about not reincarnating again, or is he just trying to throw off the Chinese government?
