Jesse Cahn-Thompson is an artist, advocate, and designer based in London whose art and design practice explores complex systems by using data and freely available digital technology to create unique sensory experiences that highlight human connectivity in both physical and synthetic ecosystems. Current research focuses on communication technologies as a means to democratise, balance, and empower people by examining the way information is exchanged, controlled, and encountered.
Past projects include work with the Processing Foundation and the David Lynch Foundation; under-resourced communities such as urban youth and the homeless; music collaborations with Vogue Paris; and performances at J. Paul Getty Museum and the Green Man, Bestival, End of the Road, Benicàssim, Sasquatch!, and Isle of Wight music festivals. His art has been exhibited at the Dyson Gallery in London, La Tôlerie Gallery of France, 202 Gallery at Central Saint Martins, Crisp-Ellert Art Museum at Flagler College, and the Hunter Museum of Art. He has run creative code and sound design workshops at the Royal College of Art and Sewanee: The University of the South.
He is currently an MA candidate in the Information Experience Design programme at the Royal College of Art.
