Artists Statement 

Blast Theory is renowned internationally as one of the most adventurous artists' groups using interactive media.  Led by Matt Adams, Ju Row Farr and Nick Tandavanitj the group has a team of seven and is based in Brighton.  The group's work explores interactivity and the relationship between real and virtual space with a particular focus on the social and political aspects of technology.  It confronts a media saturated world in which popular culture rules, using video, computers, performance, installation, mobile and online technologies to ask questions about the ideologies present in the information that envelops us.

Blast Theory has won numerous awards including; the Maverick Award at the Game Developers Choice Awards in San Francisco in 2005, the prestigious Golden Nica for Interactive Art at Prix Ars Electronica in 2003, an Honorary Mention at the Transmediale Awards in 2001 and has been nominated for four BAFTAs.
