Matthew Waddell


Hi, I’m Matthew Waddell.

I’m a digital artist and educator based in my hometown of Calgary, Canada. 

My art practice is rooted in fascination and apprehension of modern technology and internet culture. A dichotomy of attraction and repulsion drive me to create art which embraces and critiques technology.

I am interested in examining the ways technology manipulates our understanding of the world as well as our cultural and individual identities.

Through a process that is both organic and synthetic I create images, animations and interactive software programs which aim to distort the analog world through a digital lens. The results are uncanny - familiar yet otherworldly.
