Alan Warburton (b. 1980) is a queer British artist whose technologically articulate practice has involved the production of short films, prints, sculptures, 3D models, AR and VR experiences.
Central to his work is a critically literate understanding of the commercial computer generated (CG) image, which he explores through focussed software 'studies' and video essays, the latest of which ("Goodbye Uncanny Valley") gained him a global reputation as an artist at the forefront of debates around media, film and technology.
He has exhibited, screened and broadcast internationally, most notably at institutions and festivals including The Photographers' Gallery, Carnegie Museum of Art, Transmediale, National Gallery of Victoria, Fotomuseum Winterthur, Ars Electronica, The Austrian Film Museum, Southbank Centre and the Barbican. A selection of his work is archived by the British Film Institute. Alan studied Critical Fine Art Practice at Brighton University from 2002 - 2005, then Digital VFX at Escape Studios in 2007. He is currently undertaking a practice-based New Media MA at London South Bank University and part of their Centre for the Study of the Networked Image. He is also an artist-in-residence at London's Somerset House Studios.
