Universal Everything.


Based in a log cabin studio in Sheffield, Matt Pyke is a painter, photographer, artist, curator, designer, animator, director, producer and lecturer

He formed Universal Everything in 2004 as an ever-growing collective of designers, programmers, musicians and artists.

The Guardian newspaper listed the studio as one of the Top 50 designers in the UK.

Matt has lectured to audiences worldwide including D&AD President's Lecture Series, Cambridge University and Apple stores across the USA.

"Motivated by the pursuit of the new, creative research and development are central, leading to self-initiated pieces and unique projects for brands, galleries, collectors and consumers."

They do some amazing work and I would love to get some work experience with them but the problem is they don't really have a fixed studio.

Next week I am going to Glasgow to see the Advanced Beauty, and I am really looking forward to it.

"Advanced Beauty is an ongoing exploration of 18 digital artworks born and influenced by sound, an ever-growing collaboration between programmers, artists, musicians, animators and architects.

The collection is a series of audio-reactive 'video sound sculptures'. Inspired by synaesthesia, the rare sensory experience of seeing sound or tasting colours, these videos are physical manifestations of sound, sculpted by volume, pitch or structure of the soundtrack.

Curated by design studio Universal Everything and musician Freeform, Advanced Beauty is an international collaboration, taking in a family of artists from London, Russia, New York, Japan, Buenos Aires, Glasgow to San Francisco."
