Bonington Gallery closes temporarily with immediate effect
We regret that in response to the COVID-19 crisis Bonington Gallery has closed until further notice.
While the gallery is closed, we will be working on other ways of sharing art and ideas across our digital platforms. Follow our website and social media channels for videos, conversations and more.
Our office hours are 9am – 5pm, Monday – Friday. Most of the team will be working remotely during this time but will be reachable via email. Please email email@example.com with any enquiries, and for further information regarding postponed or cancelled events.
Thank you to all our visitors and supporters – we hope it is not too long before we can welcome you back to the Gallery.
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.
