About

'Artist-organiser', cultural producer, educator and independent researcher. Specialises in developing and leading inter- and trans- disciplinary projects exploring connections between art, digital culture and science, cultural activism, ecological and sustainability movements, cultural heritage and collaborative networks. What is left behind as social, digital, material and ephemeral residue of 'being t/here' has been a consistent concern. Paterson is also one of the longest-lasting members of Pixelache, attending first time in 2003, and contributing as a cultural organiser first time in 2004.

ANDREW GRYF PATERSON on skotlantilainen taiteilija-organisoija, kouluttaja, kulttuurituottaja ja riippu-maton tutkija, joka asuu Helsingissä. Hänen työnsä on sosiaalisesti suuntautunut media-, verkosto- ja ympäristötaiteen jaaktivismin aloille. Hänen luovia vahvuuksiaan ovat hybridisyys, viestintä, organisaatio ja verkostotaiteet. Patersonilla on kyky tuoda yhteen ja sitouttaa ihmiset luovaan tutkimiseen, kehittää väliaikaisia yhteisöjä ja kerätä odottamattomia elementtejä ja rakenneosia luoden näin uusia paikkoja kulttuuritoiminnalle ja tutkimukselle. Häntä kiinnostaa tutkia kenttätyön taiteellisia ja aktivistisia muotoja, ruohonjuuritason kulttuuriperintöä ja kehittyviä vertaisverkkoja yhteiskunnassa.

Художник-организатор”, культурный продюсер, преподаватель и независимый исследователь. Специализируется на развитии и координации меж- и транс-дисциплинарных проектов, которые исследуют взаимосвязь между искусством, цифровой культурой и наукой, культурным активизмом, экологическими и sustainability-движениями, культурным наследием и сетевым взаимодействием. Значимый интерес вызывает у него и вопрос о том, что представляет из себя социальный, цифровой, материальный и эфемерный осадок “бытия здесь/там”.
