Martin Howse
Martin Howse is occupied with an artistic investigation of the links between the earth (geophysical phenomena), software and the human psyche (psychogeophysics), proposing a return to animism within a critical misuse of scientific technology. Through the construction of experimental situations (within the process-driven performance, laboratories, walks, and workshops), material art works and texts, Martin Howse explores the rich links between substance or materials and execution or protocol, excavating issues of visibility and of hiding within the world.

From 1998 to 2005 he was director of ap, a software performance group working with electronic waste, and pioneering an early approach to digital glitch. In 2005 his environmental computational work, entitled ap0201 installed within the Mojave desert received first prize within the Art & Artificial Life competition VIDA 8.0. From 2007 to 2009 he hosted a regular workshop, micro-residency and salon series in Berlin. Recently he has worked and collaborated on acclaimed projects and practices such as The Crystal World, Psychogeophysics, Earthboot and Sketches towards an Earth Computer. For the last ten years, he has initiated numerous open-laboratory style projects and performed, published, lectured and exhibited diversely. He is equally the creator of the skin-driven audio divination noise module, aka. The Dark Interpreter, and the ERD modular series.
