Dr Clinton Watkins is an artist and lecturer at Colab working in areas of experimental time-based media and installation.
He holds a masters degree and a doctorate of Fine Arts from the University of Auckland and a Diploma in Audio Engineering from the School of Audio Engineering in Auckland.
Clinton’s work investigates affect through the construction of immersive experiences using sound, colour and scale, by focussing on the characteristics, structures, phenomena, and processing of sonic and visual material. His installations incorporate found and custom-made audio and video hardware to create repetition, distortion, duration and form, distilled via a minimalist sensibility. He has exhibited in solo and curated group exhibitions throughout New Zealand, Australia and Europe, and is represented by Starkwhite Gallery, Auckland.
