Wesley Goatley is a sound artist and researcher based in London, UK. His installations, sound objects, and live audio-visual performances critique the common language and imagery used to describe data and artificial intelligence, and the power these symbols have in shaping the world and our understanding of it.
He writes and gives talks on the subjects of critical data theory, digital aesthetics, and the role of machine learning and AI technologies in art practice.
Goatley’s work has been exhibited and performed internationally, at Eyebeam in New York, Milan Design Week, and the Victoria & Albert Museum in London. In 2019 he received his PhD in Creative and Critical Practice from the University of Sussex, and he is Course Leader of MA Interaction Design Communication at the London College of Communication, University of the Arts London.
