MAtthew Attard

Matthew is a current practice-based PhD candidate at the School of Design, Edinburgh College of Art of the University of Edinburgh, funded by the Malta Arts Scholarship scheme. His research is actively exploring methods of drawing-with eye-tracking technology. 

Matthew is strongly interested in situating his practice within the realm of contemporary drawing through a multimedia approach that highlights drawing’s versatile, performative, and time-based nature. His drawing projects involve some of the following themes and concepts: the extension of the line within 3D spaces; the overlaying of multiple viewpoints; the datafication of the line; drawing-with technology; notions of seeing and looking; technological embodiment; the subversion of data (and other technological aspects); socio-political conversations; and the contemporary representation of ourselves.

Matthew Attard will be representing Malta with his solo pavillion for the 60th Venice Biennale 2024
