My name is Matthew Loren Seeds and I am an artist and designer living in North East Ohio. I recieved a Graduate Degree in Arts from Kent State University in 2017, with a focus on using 3D manufacturing techniques in innovative ways. My art practice currently addresses the complex relationships between capitalism, democracy and militarism. Space exploration, to me, has always appeared to be a way out of the divisional suffering we experience as a species on this planet. Things like scientific discoveries or missions to space have a unifying effect that remind us we are all in it together on this pale blue dot. Heros like Martin Luther King Jr. and Carl Sagan inspire me to create work that keeps alive the dream of peace and prosperity for all through technological advancement and understanding of the universe.
