Matt Gingold is a transdisciplinary artist weaving together critical theory, media installation and audiovisual performance. Their practice focuses on creating intimate experiences of – and with – technology. They are inspired by critical research into histories of science, the ai/aes/ethics of digital cultures, trans/made/ness and non/human complexity.

They have received several awards and residencies, including a Prix Ars Electronica Award of Distinction for Interactive Art, a Green Room Award for Best Video Design, a European Media Art Research and Exchange Residency (DE) and two research fellowships in the fields of media, performance and machine learning at Simon Fraser University (CA, 2012-2014) and The Open University (UK, 2017-2018).
Most recently Matt has completed a Graduate Certificate of AI (2020), co-created Transitions in collaboration with Nathan Thompson, a choreography of sound, light and robotic movement for the Fremantle Biennial (2021), and was the creative producer of SymbioticA’s latest work, Sunlight, Soil & Shit (2022), a tentacular exhibition, conference and series of performance lectures and dinners that investigated techno-capitalist food production.
