Matt Mullican discusses the collisions of real and virtual space in his work with digital and interactive media in the past twenty years.
- "I went from being surrounded by things—dealing with how we name them and how we experience our environment through naming—to the opposite end of the spectrum: starting with nothing, then calling the objects into being."
—Matt Mullican, "Planetarium"
Matt Mullican was born in 1951, in Santa Monica, California, and currently lives in Berlin. His work has been exhibited extensively in the US and internationally.
