Using sampling and thought experiments as methods of formulation, Roy Immanuel’s work trials alternative modes of composition. Through painting, sound, installation and documentary, his work explores themes relating to progress, feedback loops, ambivalence and the atheist tradition. Roy Immanuel (b. 1983) received an M.A. from the Royal College of Art in 2014. He lives and works in London.
