Matt Adams (UK) is an artist, and co-founder of Blast Theory.
Matt Adams makes performances, installations, games and interactive artworks. He co-founded Blast Theory in 1991, a group renowned for its multidisciplinary approach pioneering the use of new technologies within performance contexts. The group has used interactive pressure pad systems triggered by audience members, video and audio streaming, and more recently, the convergence of collaborative virtual environments and mobile devices. Blast Theory makes live events for theaters, clubs, galleries and the street. The group's work confronts a media saturated world in which popular culture rules. It uses video and computers to ask questions about the ideologies present in the information that envelops us. The work is a fast cutting collage of images and actions, often appropriated from elsewhere.
