Matthew Pagoaga is a Los Angeles based artist, author, and filmmaker. His art work splits between conceptual investigations of disruption via mixed-media and technology, and public art light installations that probe elements of shared exploration, self-history, and collaborative play. He is a past recipient of Honoraria awards from MOZAIK Philanthropy and the Burning Man organization, and is actively creating work that hybridizes studio art with a post- studio, public art practice. Matthew's latest works examine processes of archival degradation, and human connection and disruption as related to the Covid-19 pandemic. In 2019, he left his career in the tech sector and enrolled at California Institute of the Arts – where he is currently pursuing a Master's degree in Art + Technology.
