The National Football Museum,
Manchester, will be hosting Matt for an exciting evening event featuring his innovative voice sculpture over the weekend of Thursday May 15 - Saturday May 17.

The plans for the evening involve football fans shouting and singing their own chants, from the disparaging to the unifying, the whispering of football-related rumours. The emerging sculptural form will be projected within the Hall of Fame space and onto the exterior of the iconic glass building in Manchester city centre.

More on Matt Pyke:

Founder of digital art/design studio Universal Everything, Pyke creates vibrant digital artworks that stimulate visual reactions and amplify emotions. Playing with ideas of emergent life, anthropomorphism and the tension between abstract and figurative forms, Pyke’s approach is led by materials; painting and sculpting as well as new technologies and formats including 3D printing, touch screens and large format video.

Working in the Peak District National Park and London, a major solo show of new work is currently showing in Media Space, the Science Museum’s new art and photography gallery. Pyke will work with sound and vision to install an artwork triggered by visitor’s voices.
