Andrew Paterson (born Scotland 1974) has a creative practice that evolved from the processes of printmaking, through a blend of poetic text, mixed media, virtual audio-augmented environments, towards emerging mobile interfaces. He studied BA (Hons) in Fine Art from Glasgow School of Art, completing a Master of Science in Computer-aided Graphical Technology Applications at the University of Teesside, NE England. Since 2000 he has been influenced by: engagement with metaphors, methodologies and theory from archaeology/performance to assist contextual content authoring, and recently by ethnographic fieldwork practice. Paterson has exhibited a mixture of media in Scotland and Finland, and in complementary measure has experience coordinating digital and traditional art-development workshops with a variety of people, community settings, for local and regional organisations. This background has been extended into workshops exploring creative applications of mobile technologies. Beginning 2003 he is a Doctorate of Arts candidate at Media Lab UIAH in Helsinki, Finland, and is active in the local Nordic/Baltic media arts-culture environment.
