MATT GILBERT is a media artist and designer living and working in Atlanta. He received a BFA in graphic design from Art Center College of Design, which he complemented with studies in media design, computer programming, math, and science. Some of these studies were self-directed and some were pursued through classes and a fellowship at Caltech. Matt's post-graduate work at Georgia Tech in the Digital Media department exposed him to the media design and interactive design fields, and gave him the opportunity to study and create online communities, video games, and other projects.

Meanwhile, Matt has been developing an art and design practice that includes interactive electronics, custom software development, video, crochet, and other media. As a freelance designer Matt has worked with a broad range of clients, including Fake I.D., a youth culture design firm; Sonic Generator, an experimental music ensemble-in-residence at Georgia Tech; and the Emory-Tibet Science Initiative. Matt currently works and lives at Railroad Earth, an art collective and audio/video recording and production facility in Atlanta, GA.
