Join us for a full day of workshops led by artist and Near Now Studio member Matt Woodham. Taking place at Broadway, you will learn to use specially designed software and hardware systems to create live video, interactive installations and generative art – utilising technologies such as virtual reality, machine learning and analogue devices.

In partnership with Near Now, Matt presents a series of six creative, DIY workshops over two days, led by expert artists and toolmakers. Participants will learn a cross-section of cutting-edge techniques to create generative and computational artworks.

Matt Woodham is an artist, designer and technologist. He creates interactive installations, experimental websites, moving image and graphic design. His practice and research explores system dynamics, informed by his background studying psychology and neuroscience. He investigates the common dynamics between systems of various scales, from quantum mechanics, to human behaviour. He uses hardware and software to harness behaviour such as feedback loops and randomness, to create organic generative visuals. He is particularly focussed on building entertaining, interactive and playful experiences which have underlying theory. He feels that harnessing nature’s mechanisms has the power to delight an audience, acting as a Trojan horse to ignite interest in the laws, rules and biases which govern us.
