Andy Thomas Bio


Always interested in painting and drawing from a young age, Andy began his career with his involvement in Melbourne's early rave scene back in 1993 creating UV murals for warehouse parties. His love of electronic music and all things digital lead him into the realm of computers in 1997 after finishing a graphic design course at Monash University Melbourne. 

In recent years he has begun to experiment with creating a visual fusion between Nature and Technology, by taking photos of plants, insects and machines and compositing them with artificially created forms in various 3D programs. His photographic endeavours have led him to such exotic locations as Borneo, Laos and the rainforests of Tasmania and the Daintree River.
Over the past decade Andy has exhibited work at galleries in Australia, North America and Europe. And performed live shows and symposiums in his home town of Melbourne and also the UK.

2011 - 2015 has seen the creation of the Echoes project. Through the use of digital audio software Andy begun to experiment with creating audio life forms that react to sounds. Corrupting nature with technology, by sampling sounds of the forest and running them through various computer programs. He has now extended this project further with the begining of the Syneset project with the next forests to sample being Papua new Guinea.
