itting between art, science and technology, Ryota Matsumotoâ€™s mixed media work visually speculates changes in cities, societies and cultures. He explores the intersection between architecture, social science and urban ecology as an artist. These ideas manifest as towers of colour that branch across in seemingly eclectic configurations, combining both traditional media such as ink, acrylic, graphite, and photo collage with digital media; algorithmic processing,

He presented his work for the 5th symposium of the Imaginaries of the Future at Cornell University in 2017 and currently serves as an adjunct lecturer of Transart institute, University of Plymouth. ryotamatsumoto.com email@example.com
