Adam Norton’s work explores the effects of technology on the human condition. He repurposes scientific ideas from the recent past and the near future in an attempt to map out the mental and geographical landscape of our present. His eccentric devices can be seen as a prism through which to look at the conflicts and controversies of the era. He uses paint, print, film and installation to present the most interesting narratives and ideas about our present condition and where we might be heading. He uses technology and science fiction as a narrative architecture on which to hang his ideas about mankind’s role in the universe.

Norton grew up in Lagos, Nigeria and later in Nairobi, Kenya. He studied in the United Kingdom. In 1984 Norton was awarded a BfA from The Ruskin School of Drawing and Fine Art, Oxford University. He has lived and worked in Sydney, Australia, since 2002.
