Designer and Artist
New York, NY
Matthew Ortega is an artist, designer and musician working at the intersection of art and technology. He attended Mason Gross School of the Arts in the 2000s, where remix culture and questions of authorship reemerged as a result of new technologies. After having worked with collage and archival videos for many years, he now applies his skills as a digital designer and programmer to start creating custom software to further expand his artistic expression. Though he still works with ideas of refuse, decay, and distortion that come from remix culture, he also began to explore what technology can offer to one's art practice.
