Seiya Matsumoto is a London-based conceptual artist. He explores the relationship between humans and non-humans through a real experience with both creatures and non-creatures. His projects stimulate people to think of symbiosis and imagine a sustainable world.
He is also interested in the possibilities through both physical and virtual experiences. His latest work, “hug,” an interactive installation, and “trip”, VR content, were displayed in the same place. They both communicated the “animism” theme by creating immersive feelings. He aimed to experiment with how physical and digital outcomes can synergize and enhance audiences’ experience in intuitive and intellectual ways.
He has a professional background as a creator in the advertising industry prior to undertaking an MA in Information Experience Design at the Royal College of Art.
