Hi I’m Matthew Waddell.

I’m a digital artist and educator based in my hometown of Calgary, Canada.  By 'digital art' I mean the little digital baby that is born when humans and machines engage in the beautiful, frustrating, and often painful act of clicking each other's buttons and stroking each other's keys.  I’ve been doing this for about ten years and have birthed a wide range of hard drive consuming creations including digital images and animations, video projection related happenings, sound creations and interactive scenarios. You can explore some of them below. 

I see creative expression as a lifelong voyage, and I am fascinated to be undertaking it at this moment in history. I’ve always been interested in the strange, surreal and absurd - it often reveals something profound about who we are and seems more relevant than ever, given the absurd times we are living in.

I love sharing knowledge with people and try to teach as much as I can.

I would deeply truly like to chat to you about projects, comissions, workshops or life.
