Matthew Lee is a live visual and installation artist, a video designer and currently working at Manchester Metropolitan University teaching and developing his own research methods in technological and human interaction within spatial environments.
He has performed live visuals for: the Hacienda, Cream, D&AD, Glastonbury, Manchester Jazz Festival, Festival Number 6 and BlueDot and he currently holds a visuals residency at the Warehouse Project in Manchester. Matt has been commissioned for the Liverpool Biennial installation ‘Inhospitable Landscapes’ as well as Liverpool Light Night 2016 ‘Neo-Collective Consciousness’.
He is interested in how virtual environments can be generated from our own bodies’ sensory qualia. Specifically, Matthew is interested in how biometric data is manipulated within visual environments and how this management then creates a thought-provoking, meaningful experience for the audience. Matt’s line of enquiry within his project and research topics stem from a key interest in a technologically virtual and immersive realisation of human perception.
