Matthew Rosier (1990) is an artist based in London whose work mixes technology with film and sound in the form of immersive public installations. His practice often involves the public in both the creation process and finished work, embedding himself in communities and places. The stories that emerge from these projects weave human and ecological; embodying a more connected relationship between each other, and toward our natural landscapes.

Recent projects include Navvies (2022), a public memorial to the thousands of men who dug the Manchester Ship Canal, resulting in an audio visual installation in the canal and new community garden in MediaCity. Wood Rots Like We Do (2023), a video installation about the ancient shrines of Ise, Japan, entirely rebuilt of wood every 20 years, told through the stories of 15 participants, including politicians, priests, artists, foresters and activists. City of Trees (2022) brought Epping Forest into the City of London, in the form of life-size fire-lit portraits of its ancient trees projected onto a church tower, surrounded by an immersive soundscape recorded in the forest.

Matthew's work has been installed in public spaces in London, Paris, Austin, and Tokyo; commissioned by the councils of Westminster, Southwark, Rotherham, Doncaster, Wakefield, Cheshire East and the City of London; shown at the Design Museum and the Victoria and Albert Museum in London; nominated as one of the Design Museum’s Designs of the Year; and awarded the Active Public Space Award, the London Contemporary Art Prize Public Vote Award, and the Museum + Heritage Innovation Award. Matthew studied architecture at Oxford Brookes and the Bartlett, University College London, and was a resident at Fabrica, a design research centre in Italy.

In 2015 Matthew founded Chomko & Rosier with Canadian artist Jonathan Chomko. The studio has been commissioned to produce interactive and educational installations engaging with British history at such historical sites as Hampton Court Palace, the Palace at Whitehall, and Banqueting House. Some works produced through that partnership, including Shadowing and Relative Clocks currently tour globally.
