Matt Nish-Lapidus has been commissioned to create a site-specific sound installation as a continuation of our South Stairwell Sound Series, launched in late 2021. Nish-Lapidus’ varied practice probes the myth that computers should be useful rather than beautiful by examining contemporary technoculture, its histories, and its impacts. His work results in diverse outputs including publications, recordings, installations, performances, software, and objects.
