Matthew Woodham is an artist who works across disciplines. His practice currently explores the system dynamics of nature in both research and practical application. His academic background in cognitive neuroscience has informed an expanded study of the common dynamics and structures described by physical and mathematical principles.
He creates audio-visual works and sculptural installation environments using a variety of processes such as coding, electronic circuits and experimental physical techniques. He has a particular focus on spatial interactions, algorithmic models of nature and emergence or ‘simple components exhibiting complex behaviour’.
He aims to create immersive environments which synthesise the abstract and uncanny, appealing to universal human intuitions. He uses live settings to create immediate, real-time experiences while concurrently integrating theoretical demonstrations and scientific principles.
