Matt Nish-Lapidus makes software, sounds, and texts probing the myth that computers need to be useful rather than beautiful. He holds a Honors Bachelor of Fine Arts in New Media from Ryerson University and a Master of Visual Studies (Studio) from The University of Toronto. Matt’s interests lie in the poetics of computation and its proclivity to create meaningful relations through iteration and recombination. His work results in diverse outputs including books, recordings, installations, performances, software, and objects. Matt has performed and exhibited at ACUD Macht Neu (Berlin), Electric Eclectics Festival (Ontario), InterAccess (Toronto), Mayhem (Copenhagen), The Plumb (Toronto) and many DIY spaces in North America and Europe. You can find Matt online and away-from-keyboard under various aliases and collaborations including emenel, New Tendencies, må, and <blink>.
