Matt Gingold is an Australian electronic artist and audiovisual designer whose practice spans performance and installation contexts. He has worked across screen, stage, community and interactive projects, creating works that integrate technology with contemporary narratives, often bridging cultural, technical and artistic divides. He is deeply interested in the effects and affects of technology and the role it plays in the production of desire, perception and identity. Whilst it is often the context, means and subject of his works, his practice emerges from an ambivalence about technology, consumer culture and the commercialisation of knowledge. 

An online symposium exploring ideas of basic income and the need for an approach to economy that puts creativity and care at its centre. Led by a panel of artists, researchers, economists, scientists and philosophers, the symposium responds to current and ongoing planetary crises, and positions creativity and social ecology as integral to shaping policy and systems of value.

The Symposium is a joint initiative of Arts Front, BLINDSIDE and Next Wave and was supported by the City of Melbourne COVID-19 Arts Grants.
