BIO

- ||EXISTENCE|| - ′′

Matt Woodham is an artist/designer/creative technologist with a background in psychology & neuroscience. Through his research, and fascination for knowledge gained from human experience and empirical evidence – he strives to unravel the systems and patterns underpinning our physical & natural worlds; often looking at the common dynamics between both technical and human systems, such as the transfer of signal, waves, energy and information.

With a particular focus on the aesthetics and qualities of medias, he designs and builds experiences, products, installations and audio-visual content; to communicate ideas/perceptions, and to explore solutions to complex social problems – especially regarding sustainability, efficiency and wellbeing.

He believes that the interdisciplinary space between art, science and technology can provide the possibilities for inducing both wonderment and socio-cultural advancement. Using science as the ground, technology as the tool and art as the expression.

Recently a member of Near Now studio, working on Unible, a platform addressing the future challenges of work; aiming to help the realisation of diverse projects, and the discovery of meaningful collaborations. Also currently a member of One Thoresby Street where his personal sound/visual studio and shared workshop is based.
