User Bio

Matthew Pell (b.1968) is a UK-based Moving-Image Artist & Lecturer

Since 2000 Pell has been creating both commissioned and self-initiated single-screen videos exploring human identity in urban architectural environments and man made objects that emanate light.

His work is concerned with city topography, light and the manipulation of time and sound. Much of Pell's practice employs looped, reversed, speeded or slowed footage, abstracted compositions, multiple frames and affected audio to stimulate a visceral response from the viewer.

Pell has also collaborated with musicians, sound artists and theatre companies to produce projections for live performances, music videos and video art.
