CV


Aaro Murphy is a multimedia artist, working across video, sound & sculpture. His practice focuses on the uncanny spatial and perceptual nature of contemporary medias and devices of virtual architecture. An ongoing research question is the ability for complex digital systems to take presence in space and develop a liveliness and performativity of their own.
