Oliver Smith is a London based artist and researcher, his work investigates the myths surrounding large-scale systems, processes and computation and their techno-political impact. This investigation manifests as interventions, performances and installations engaging directly with these systems.

Oliver co-chairs the Demystification Committee with Francesco Tacchini and is an associate lecture at the London College of Communication and the University for the Creative Arts. He recently completed an MA in Information Experience Design at the Royal College of Art, London.
