Justin Harvey is a Sydney (Australia) based media artist and academic who lives and works on Gadigal land with a diverse background in visual arts & production. As well as writing/directing his own short films, Justin has worked in research and camera departments for TV, as DOP on music videos, producer/director on advertising campaigns and picture editor on feature documentary and drama projects. Justin's creative practice research spans moving image, installation and virtual reality experience in solo and collaborative practice. He nurtures an ongoing fascination with the creative potentials of human machine interaction, embracing experimental methods that seek to exploit digital imaging technologies, and the evolving ‘artificial intelligence’ systems that increasingly drive them, in unintended and playful ways. His solo works have explored the ‘glitch’ as aesthetic and political movement, still and moving image collage, the novel shaping of digital video feedback and, more recently, imagery generated using a variety of generative diffusion models. Justin has exhibited work in solo and curated exhibitions in Sydney, Chicago, Vancouver, Amsterdam, Hong Kong and South Korea. His 2023 collaboration with generative AI, Unprompted Studies 1-3, was a finalist in the Fisher's Ghost Art Award.
