Contemporary American artist known for his use of installations.

Dion engages with a number of elements from culture and scientific disciplines, including archaeology, ecology and zoology. Natural history has been a recurring subject for Dion. Much of Dion's work has its feet in both nature and culture, where he purposefully addresses and questions the tensions and dialogues between them. Research such as scientific fieldwork plays a vital role in Dion's practice.
