Martin Howse

Martin Howse is occupied with an artistic investigation of the links between the earth, software and the human psyche, proposing a return to animism within a critical misuse of scientific technology. Howse constructs experimental situations (within process-driven performance, laboratories, walks, and workshops), material art works and texts. From 1998 to 2005 he was director of ap, a software performance group working with electronic waste, and pioneering an early approach to digital glitch. In 2005, his environmental computational work ap0201, installed within the Mojave desert, received first prize for the VIDA 8.0 competition. From 2007 to 2009 he hosted a regular workshop, micro-residency and salon series in Berlin. Recent acclaimed projects and collaborations include The Crystal World, Psychogeophysics, Earthboot and Sketches towards an Earth Computer. For the last ten years he has initiated numerous open-laboratory style projects and performed, published, lectured and exhibited diversely.
