Simon Sutherland was born in London, raised across the U.S, but has called the Bay Area home for over 20 years. He is “classically” trained in Conceptual Art at SMCA, ASU and SFAI yet somehow stumbled into the http revolution. He pushes bits by day and sparks by night. He has been exploring various modes of interaction and immersion since 1990.
Simon has worked with FLG, Flux Foundation, LHNM, SFIOP and regularly collaborates with Ardent Heavy Industries. He is enthralled with sculpting metal, but in the end it all comes down to shaping human experience. He believes Art is best when it elegantly engages aesthetically, emotionally and intellectually to enable participants find their own way to the ah-ha moment of self-discovery.
