Joe McAlister

Joe is a London-based computational artist and privacy advocate. Typically focusing on 'metadata' and the surprising details it can often reveal about the user. His work uses a mixture of programming, AI, machine learning and traditional art mediums including sculpture to realise his ideas. Creating coherent pieces that seamlessly blend technology with fine art containing powerful messages for the viewer to discover. Wherever possible his work is open source and available on his github account.

He has received commissions and awards from established universities including Goldsmiths, University of London and Kings College, London. Worked alongside interactive theatre group fanSHEN, consulted on a number of works including those commissioned by Saatchi & Saatchi and sat on panels in conjunction with IBM.
