In der Jury des prix diy* engineering

Matt Donovan is an artist, industrial designer, and conservator of kinetic artworks. He graduated from the Ontario College of Art and Design and has since worked as an industrial designer for artists. Formally trained in Fine Arts, but with an instinctive understanding of engineering, he has built a career in which design and art are inseparable. Both in his personal and professional work he skirts the line between art and design. Highlights include a series of works with Hallie Siegel called 'History Machines'; the mechanical design of Max Dean's and Raffaello D'Andrea's The Table; and collaboration with Max Dean and Raffaello D’Andrea on The Robotic Chair. Projects he has contributed to have exhibited at the National Gallery of Canada, and the Venice Biennale. He has exhibited at ARS Electronica, ARCO art fair, Luminato Festival, and the Olga Korper Gallery.
