Still from Long (2012)
Andrew McWilliams is an installation artist who is interested in creating spaces which explore the nature of perceptual experience.
Working with mixed media including light, sound, software and readymade objects, his work explores the hidden projections inherent in cognition, and the shaping effect this has on our view of the world.
Andrew has shown and developed work in India, London, and the USA. He has been awarded residencies at Contemporary Artist Center (NY), I-Park (CT), and Jaaga Creative Common Ground (Bangalore).
The work Measure (2011) was the winning entry to Patch Slam at Alpha-Ville Festival of Post-Digital Culture (London).
Andrew works as a software development consultant, and his technical understanding is a key factor in the construction of his environments - software as a creative medium. He has run workshops at Goldsmiths Digital Studios in London, and at Jaaga Creative Common Ground in Bangalore, India.
His work has been featured in Time Out Bangalore, and has been the subject of a Jaaga Journals video feature. In collaboration with the V4W collective he has shown work at the Freemote Electronic Arts & Co-Creation Festival in Utrecht.
Andrew holds a First-class BSc in Software Engineering from the University of Northampton, and a Diploma in Illustration and Information Graphics from Warwickshire College.
