Curator

Dr. Matthew Lutz

Matthew is a biologist with an interest in understanding nonhuman forms of cognition, especially extended and collective cognition. With a background in architecture, he began studying biological systems to understand self-organized construction in nature as part of his Master’s research at Columbia University. He went on to receive a PhD in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology from Princeton University, where the focus of his research was on the self-assembled structures built by ants out of their own bodies. More recently, he has been a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Max Planck Institute for Ornithology in Konstanz, and scientist-in-residence at Studio Tomás Saraceno in Berlin.


ASN Creates a platform for sharing knowledge, ideas and experience between scientific and artistic milieus. Challenging and promoting interdisciplinary excellence in art and science.

These are some of the people from diverse backgrounds that ASN has brought together to explore and generate new ideas and alternative perspectives on science and culture.
