Matthew Plummer-Fernandez

Matthew Plummer-Fernandez is a British-Colombian digital artist and researcher who explores the relationship between digital aesthetics and artistic production. He was born in London, raised in Colombia and holds a BEng in Computer Aided Mechanical Engineering from Kings College London and an MA in Design Products from the Royal College of Art London.

Matthew uses computational processes and digital fabrication techniques to produce digital alienations of everyday objects. Customized software, replicability and generative techniques are the focus of his exploration of the automated systems that operate within digital culture and the physical world. Using 3D printing Plummer-Fernandez transforms everyday images into sculptural glitches; he makes modified data-files and distorted 3D printed objects as “recomposed” abstract geometric shapes.

Matthew has been commissioned by arts organisations such as the V&A, Rhizome, Arts Co, and It’s Nice That and has shown in galleries and museums, including Zhulong Gallery, Dallas; Onassis Cultural Centre, Athens; Cyberarts / Ars Electronica, Linz; Brighton Digital Festival and FACT Liverpool. MPF is represented by Nome Gallery, Berlin.



Shiv Integer is a software robot that randomly selects 3D printable objects on a website, assembles them into sculptures and posts them back online. Is it art or spam? The 3D printing community remains divided on the question. For this first Shiv Integer exhibition, the artists will show a 3D-printed selection of its sculptures, and a visualisation of the online debates it fostered.


Matthew Plummer-Fernandez & JODI create 3D-printed sculptured objects, that explore incongruous hybridisations and errors created by the Internet found objects, algorithms and digital fabrication machines.


Log out, Turn Off, Join the fun :) 40+ artists from JP, US & EU! The mysterious collective invites us to perpetuate "in real life" the freedom and joyful anarchy of the early web with the Internet Yami-Ichi. The second edition outside of Japan of this post-digital flea market will take place in Brussels' Art Nouveau landmark Les Ateliers des Tanneurs!


This openLAB is the first masterclass on Digital Fabrication at iMAL. With an emphasis on forms generated by code, it will end with an exhibition of the works produced by the participants.
