Adam Zootine

I am a storyteller and I use a combination of video, audio, photo, collage, illustration, writing and performance to do so.

Raised rural on an Ottawa Valley commune and aged urban in Toronto’s eclecticism, my style represents that dichotomy; ‘Zootine’ is my term to describe this mix.

Zootine = zoo + poutine; zoo = a curated collection of natural wildness (ordered chaos); poutine = a transcendent dish of humble ingredients (sacred mundane).

My brand is thus hand-hewn and low-fi like a scrapbook but also well-curated and intentional like a museum.

With that I welcome you to my world. Enjoy your stay.
