Alan Warburton Artist, animator, author, curator & video essayist
I’m an artist, animator, author, curator and video essayist working with CGI, VR, AR, installation and sculpture. Over the last decade I’ve had over a million views of my animated films and even managed the unlikely feat of going semi-viral with critical video essays about computer graphics and visual culture. I’m currently researching digital images and labour for a PhD at Birkbeck’s Vasari Centre in London.
I’ve been commissioned by the BBC, Tate Modern, Photographers Gallery and Channel 4, exhibited work at Transmediale, Ars Electronica, National Gallery of Australia and had residencies and lectures at the V&A, Somerset House, Carnegie Mellon and the Architecture Association School. I’ve worked with artists Jeremy Deller, Matt Stokes and drag queen Katya Zamolodchikova. I’ve even won a few awards.
Ask me about CGI, AI, VFX, digital aesthetics, the philosophy of technology, artistic labour, queer politics and mental health awareness. Don’t ask me about accidentally becoming the centre of a human interest story about my upstairs neighbours art.
