Thomas Asmuth is an artist and an Assistant Professor at the University of West Florida where he teaches courses in digital and experimental media at the UWF Department of Art. Asmuth utilizes science and technology as method and media to explore culture, aesthetics, social practices, and performance. Asmuth is an alumnus of the CADRE Laboratory for New Media at San José State (MFA 2009) and holds a BFA in Painting (2000) from the San Francisco Art Institute.
Asmuth’s process is a complication of disciplines that often defies categorization. In 2003, a physicist friend encouraged Asmuth to reincorporate scientific and technological media into his art. That year he built a series of meditative chambers that included home-made particle physics instruments which revealed subatomic processes like cosmic rays, Muon decays and Alpha particles for the viewer. The subjects of Asmuth's current research include autonomous robotics, portraits and imaging of the ‘Space Race’, invisible spectra, voxel aesthetics, and wearable computing.
Asmuth’s works and collaborations have been exhibited in the United States and internationally including: NetArtizen, Thompson Gallery (San José State University), SECAC2013, Brick City Gallery (Missouri State University), 319 Scholes (NYC), turbulence.org (sic), the 17th International Symposium on Electronic Art (ISEA2011, Istanbul), the Laguna Art Museum (CA), 2006 Zer01 Biennial (2006, 2008, & 2012 San José, CA), Salisbury University (MD), and the Francis Tang Teaching Museum (Saratoga Springs, NY).
