Tim Shaw

Tim Shaw is an artist working with sound, light and communication media. Presenting work through musical performances, installations and sound walks Tim is interested in how environments can be constructed or explored using a diverse range of techniques and technologies. He works with field recordings, electronics, video, modular synthesis, sound objects, self-made hardware and DIY software. Shaw has been lucky enough to work with Chris Watson, Phill Niblock, John Bowers, John Richards (Dirty Electronics), Tetsuya Umeda, Tess Denman-Cleaver, Ryoko Akama, Jacek Smolicki and Sébastien Piquemal.


Collaboration is central to Tim’s approach and he looks forward to working with the other Net//Work artists. During his residency, Tim will develop an augmented sound walk which explores the relationship between digital technologies and urban spaces. He will also explore network latency as an artistic material, putting the infrastructures of communication technology in dialogue with physical spaces.
