Richard Healy

(b 1980, London UK) lives and works in London. His work encompasses a number of media including video, sculpture, installation and print; central is the role of function. Embodied through simulations of design, his practice frequently engages with digital technology as a means for artistic production and with it the acts of labour that are obscured beneath the finish.
