Matthew Plummer-Fernandez is an artist exploring emerging digital technology and digital culture. Over the last 6 years his work has been exhibited and published globally including relevant articles on Creative Applications, Makerbot, Shapeways, Ponoko and Creative Review. He has received commissions from curators Arts Co, It’s Nice That, Designersblock and Selfridges. In 2009 he won the IDFX breakthrough talent of the year award.
Matthew uses scanning, digital fabrication and computational approaches to making remixed artefacts that blur the distinction between the real and digital, referencing the digitization and glitched realities of the everyday. Everyday items such as toys and a watering can are 3D scanned using a digital camera and subjected to algorithms that distort, abstract and taint them into new primordial forms. In some cases only close inspection reveals traces inherited from their physical predecessors. These are then 3D printed in color ink/ powder on a z-corp printer.
