Matt Woodham is an artist, designer and technologist whose practice evades disciplinary definition. For Sensing Systems, Woodham’s debut solo exhibition, the gallery will be filled with a composition of connected installations, positioning visitors within a system of light, sound and motion. Visual and kinetic events will be sequenced by a central processing unit that distributes signals around the room.

  • From: Saturday 15 February 2020, 10 am
  • To: Saturday 28 March 2020, 3 pm
  • Location: Bonington Gallery, Bonington building, Dryden Street, Nottingham, NG1 4GG

Event details

Matt Woodham is an artist, designer and technologist whose practice evades disciplinary definition. After specialising in visual neuroscience during his degree, he channelled his skills and interests into generating auditory and visual experiences – including music videos, live visuals for club nights, light installations, and experimental websites.  

In recent years, Woodham’s research into the complex systems of the brain has evolved into a broader interdisciplinary practice. Inspired by the emergent, irreducible states of perception, he utilises experimental techniques such as feedback loops, generative algorithms and randomness. He employs code and electronic circuits to exploit the liminal space between order and disorder. These processes reflect the common non-linear dynamics that are shared between systems of various scales – from quantum mechanics to the economy. He feels that harnessing nature’s mechanisms has the power to delight an audience.

For Sensing Systems, Woodham’s debut solo exhibition, the gallery will be filled with a composition of connected installations, positioning visitors within a system of light, sound and motion. Visual and kinetic events will be sequenced by a central processing unit that distributes signals around the room. The audience can interact with the system, which alongside random data sources and a sensitivity to initial conditions will create a unique experience for each viewer.
