About

Nathen Street is a media artist and educator from Brisbane, Australia. He creates immersive physical and interactive environments that challenge traditional notions of interaction by using methods that blur and augment reality. In his practice he develops custom software and electronics using sensors, internet enabled devices, wearable and personal electronics.

Through his works Nathen wants to remind audiences that technology is omnipresent and it’s potential unrealised, waiting to be explored and discovered. Nathen draw inspiration from science fiction, the unseeable work around us, nature and a desire to create works that create shared experiences.
