“Matt Pyke is one of the most innovative – and positive – motion-artists of his time. His approach can be described as both scientific and holistic, as the name of his design studio, Universal Everything, suggests…

Whether commissioned to do mass branding or experimental pieces, immersive environments or shop installations, Pyke’s creative process aims to blur the boundaries between genres and disciplines, labels and categories, arts and sciences. As such, Pyke is the poster child for the digital revolution, the hybrid resulting from coupling online communities with open source philosophies. His electronic parents are hacking and remix culture…

Over the last decade, Matt Pyke has engaged in constant exchange and debate, setting people on the course of creation and communication through his studio Universal Everything. Driven by the excitement of learning, His creative process is flexible and associative. Pyke always looks for the appropriate skills to nurture any given project and often ventures in unorthodox collaborations. The title of the exhibition, Matt Pyke & Friends, is an example of his deeply open-minded attitude, always encouraging contributions and shared efforts. Through his studio, Matt acts in a spirit of modern companionship, always respecting the input of his collaborators; the master model does not apply here.”

‘Artists love to portray technology as the villain, as a force for evil that makes short work of our humanity… Matt Pyke isn’t one of them. The artist — who, it should be noted, works out of a log cabin in Sheffield, England — is an unabashed techno-optimist.’ – Suzanne Labarre, Fast Company
