Matthew Ledwidge is an artist working with site-specific installations, photography, sculpture, web projects, and video. His work engages with the historical conditions of the production of knowledge, imagination, and attention. He uses simulation technologies to explore the agency of technical models and their artistic and political effects. His recent projects have incorporated urban simulation models, climate sensors, photogrammetry, and architectural rendering to explore the epistemology of images and histories of attention in the built environment.
He holds a Master of Science in Art, Culture and Technology from MIT School of Architecture + Planning, and a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the Cooper Union. He is currently the Programming Coordinator at e-flux. He was recently a Research Fellow at the Institute for Public Architecture in New York City, MIT Transmedia Storytelling Fellow, University of Toronto Blackwood “Mediatic Edition” Fellow, and New England Foundation for the Arts Public Art Learning Fund recipient.
