Nathan Thompson [AUS]

(Early 2016-current)

Nathan John Thompson‘s work examines the role of humans in ‘nature’ by mapping sono-kinetic territories that act as filters for understanding inhabited space. In these ‘spaces’ Thompson experiments with new possibilities for man/machine interaction, mechanical sentience and the complexities produced from these relationships. He uses machines (self built, analogue, lifelike in their behaviour) to explore questions of consciousness, mechanical sentience and object oriented ontology.
