Matilda Skelton Mace is a Berlin-based interdisciplinary artist & DJ. Her work uses light, space and geometric form as building blocks to explore ideas of imagined and virtual space in installations which span nightclubs and galleries, warehouses and forests. Recently she has focused on a series of psychedelic audiovisual light sculptures which are controlled live in response to musical performers and DJs.

A graduate of the MA Computational Arts course at Goldsmiths, she masterminds installations for multisensory party collective Universe of Tang, upending expectations of the club experience across London, Berlin and beyond with idiosyncratic themes and emergency bananas. She has worked with Gottwood, Inverted Audio and Edited Arts, as well as developing commissioned online work 'Sky Island' after being selected as recipient of the Aspen Online Art Award 2016.

She recently exhibited 'Earth Module' alongside Luke Jerram’s 'Museum of the Moon' at Sherborne Abbey and Nothe Fort, as part of Dorset Moon’s ‘Under the Moon’ programme, produced by Activate Performing Arts, b-side and Bournemouth Arts by the Sea festival.
