Lucas Glenn’s research-creation aims to collapse the binary of human and nature. This collapsed-space offers utopian and dystopian proposals for human-nonhuman kinship. Glenn employs materials like plant matter, snowmobile parts, aluminum, hiking supplies and electronics. Though his installations are sometimes playful, they explore material realities of climate crisis, colonization, and resource extraction. His subject matter pulls from fantasy and science-fiction in film, literature, and video games.

Glenn is an emerging artist. He lives, researches, and works on the traditional territory of lək̓ʷəŋən-speaking nations. He is a graduate student at University of Victoria in Visual Arts. Glenn has exhibited at the Salmon Arm Arts Centre, Kelowna Art Gallery, the Alternator Centre for Contemporary Art, the Vernon Public Art Gallery, and Island Mountain Arts. Glenn has received a British Columbia Arts Council Scholarship (2021), an Okanagan Arts Award (2017), and a UBC Creative Studies Department Award (2014). In 2015 he was commissioned by the Pacific Association of Artist Run Centres to curate a reading list for the BC interior.

From 2019 to 2021, Glenn developed duo exhibitions in collaboration with artist and brother, Mat Glenn. This was thanks to an ongoing, shared residency with the Alternator Centre for Contemporary Art's Studio 111. Recently Glenn was a virtual artist in residence with the Salmon Arm Arts Centre. There he developed a kinetic, sound-based sculpture with knowledge, help, and guidance from Secwepemc Knowledge Keeper Louis Thomas (Neskonlith).
