Grant Stewart is a cross-disciplinary artist whose practice broadly investigates how technology can enhance human creativity. He blends new media, code and robotics with traditional materials and methods to explore issues surrounding artistic authenticity, scientific advancement, and transhumanist ideas.

For Analogue Disturbances, Grant will be installing a new robot in the Waverley Library Galleries. Grant’s robot watches visitors to the library, autonomously creating an abstract work which maps the space and its users.
