Welcome to the website of artist, multi-disciplinary technologist, director, hacker, and composer Martin Backes


I am happy to announce that my Pixelhead artwork will be part of the ‘New Aesthetic?’ exhibition in Brisbane, Australia.


In 2011, artist James Bridle introduced the term “New Aesthetic” to articulate a concept referring to the increasing appearance of the visual language of digital technology and the Internet in the physical world, and the blending of the virtual and physical.

This exhibition examines creative practice from Queensland, Australian, and international inter-media artists reflecting on the idea of a New Aesthetic, identifying new ways of comprehending the world via a technological lens, and interrogating its significance within contemporary cultural practice.
