David Cotterrell received an MA in Fine Art: Combined Media from Chelsea College of Art and Design in 1997. David is an installation artist working across varied media including video, audio, interactive media, artificial intelligence, device control and hybrid technology. His work exhibits political, social and behavioural analyses of the environments and contexts, which he and his work inhabit. Recent work has involved research into computational models of conversational speech, an artificially intelligent pedestrian urban population and a self-sustaining gridlock generator. He has been recently working in Shanghai, China on research into the impact of population expansion with the support of an Arts Council England and British Council award.
Over the last ten years, his work has been extensively commissioned and exhibited in North America, Europe and the Far East, in gallery spaces, museums and within the public realm. David has also been a consultant to strategic masterplans, cultural and public art policy for urban regeneration, healthcare and growth areas. He was selected for the Becks Futures Awards at the ICA, London, 2002.
