Simon Alexander-Adams is a Detroit based multimedia artist and designer working within the intersection of music, visual arts and technology. He specializes in creating real-time generative art, interactive installations and audiovisual performances. He is inspired by the emergent patterns found in nature and often uses complex systems to simulate natural phenomenon in the pursuit of organic textures and surprising interactions. He also draws on a love of fractals and geometry, science fiction and glitch art (the aesthetics of failure.)
His work has been presented at international festivals, including Electric Forest, Coachella, the Ann Arbor Film Festival, Cinetopia, and the 2018 Bi-City Biennale of Urbanism/Architecture Shenzhen. He also performs regularly with the art-rock band saajtak which in turn has performed at Sonic Circuits (D.C.), Strange Beautiful Music (Detroit), and shared the stage with musical artists such as Xiu Xiu, Gaelynn Lea, Vicky Chow, New Music Detroit, Laurie Amat, Alan Licht, and more. Simon received a MA in Media Arts in 2015 from the University of Michigan, School of Music, Theatre & Dance.
