Biography

Matthew Ritchieʼs installations integrating painting, wall drawings, light boxes, performance, sculpture, and moving image are investigations into the complex and transient nature of information. His works describe generations of systems, ideas, and their subsequent interpretations in a kind of cerebral web, concretizing ephemeral and intangible theories of information and time. Ritchie has engaged in many cross-disciplinary collaborations, extending his own projects to explore the possibility of shared systems and aggregations in contexts as diverse as opera, contemporary music, architecture, horticulture, urban design, theology and science.
