Through his art Nathen Street aims to create shared experiences and spaces that encourage exploration and play. He believes the impact of art is more than it's meaning: it brings us closer together.
His practice explores ways that challenge traditional notions of interaction through immersive and interactive environments that blur and augment reality. His works span screen and projection based works, sculpture and sonic spaces.
Street studied visual and interaction design at Queensland University of Technology from 2000 – 2005. He was commissioned in 2018 by the Brisbane Powerhouse to produce a permanent interactive lighting installation "Space Pixels", and in 2016 by the Smithsonian Institution Travelling Exhibition Service to develop an interactive installation, as part of five year touring exhibition in the United States "Weather Machine".
In 2011, Street worked with Australia Council Fellowship recipient Suzon Fuks to develop interactive machines for the Waterwheel performances at the Judith Wright Centre of Contemporary Arts. He has had residencies at Salamanca Arts, State Library of Queensland, and his work has featured at Electrofringe Festival, BARI Festival and Restrung Festival.
Street lives and works in Brisbane, Australia.
