BIO

- ||EXISTENCE|| - ′′

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

With a focus on the aesthetic qualities of both digital and analogue mediums, he designs and builds experiences, products, installations and audio-visual content. He aims to adjust perceptions and communicate ideas, exploring solutions to complex social problems.

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.

Creator of Multimodal, an experimental audio-visual event series exploring concepts of perception, multi-sensory integration, complexity theory and system dynamics. Recent member of Near Now studio, working on Unible, a platform addressing the future challenges of work; through the realisation of 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.
