Matt Davis makes work appearing to reside in the digital world which actually inhabits our physical space. It’s anxiety-inducing to imagine that tech could be more pervasive into our lives than it already is – and Davis is making sure we consider this.

Davis had a big year with a feature in Wallpaper* The New Futurists issue (2018),  participation in Decorex (2018), a selected collaborator for ECAlab (Environmental Ceramics for Architecture Laboratory, his work was picked up by Heal’s a high-end British furniture and furnishing retailer, and he won the ‘Emmanuel Cooper Award’ at Ceramic Art London.
