Tim Minter is a Brighton based electronic artist and programmer working at the intersection of whimsical art and product design. He designs and hand builds one off and short run pieces often based round light and motion. He finds beauty in the connected world, the data it generates and attempts to harness that, show it, and react to it, in his pieces.
Inevitably the connected world means the world of social media and the focus of much of his work is consuming and reacting to social media, either en-mass or at an intimate individual level.
Many pieces combine art and product design and their external simplicity can bely the mechanical, electronic and programming complexity.
He works in metal, plastics and wood and with his short run pieces will experiment with different finishing materials.
The construction of each piece is usually the culmination of many months work and the creation of many prototypes.
