Nathan Gates

Nathan Gates is an artist based in Johannesburg where he also consults as a creative technologist and lectures part-time in digital arts at the University of The Witwatersrand.

His practice explores the domestication of knowledge at the hands of digital technologies, and the dynamic between agency and structure in relation to the role these technologies play in shaping everyday activities. Though various modes of mindful experimentation and the productive use of error he creates assemblages that are at once portable and nonsense in the process.

Recently, in his function as a creative technologist, Gates has been involved with the organization of a series of hackathons and workshops around the intersection of youth culture and technology, aimed at promoting a cultural understanding and use of technology in everyday activities.
