NEW YORK | 2018–2019
Matt Romein is an artist and performer working at the intersection of live performance, generative computer art, and multimedia installation. Originally trained as an actor, he has worked extensively in NYC’s downtown theater and dance community as a sound and video designer while also making his own technology-centric live performances. He is a graduate of NYU Tisch School of the Arts ITP where he also completed a research residency and now teaches in areas focused on live video performance and avatar focused interactive art.
His current artistic research explores how the physical body is represented in digital spaces and how those bodies can be manipulated in evocative and unsettling ways in order to challenge ideas of identity, autonomy, and ethics. At CultureHub he also curates a performance showcase, Indeterminate Forms, inviting new and young artists to present their work in short form format. By curating artists from a variety of contexts and backgrounds the showcase will allow both the artists and audience to engage and encounter new ideas of what technology-based performance can be and how it can be presented.
