Based in London, Neal White is an artist whose experiments, fieldwork and practice use a range of digital/traditional visual media. In work that has explored subjects ranging from self-experimentation to secrecy, creating epistemic things and experimental institutions, he has undertaken inquiries that explore our contemporary relationship to converging landscapes of nature, science and technology.

After co-founding one of the UKs first art & technology collectives; Soda in 1997 (to 2002), White focused on projects that engaged science, its moral and ethical dimensions, supported by Arts Catalyst, London (2001-). The site includes selected projects from this period, as well as links to a series of works developed with Office of Experiments that was established by White in 2004. The Office of Experiments is an independent platfrom for projects that now aims to provide new perspectives on contested landscapes, environments and ecologies.

Neal White is a Professor of Art / Science at University of Westminster. He is a Director of the research centre CREAM with Professor May Adadol Ingawanij, where both are founding members of Ecological Futurisms collective. He was a curator of the Soil Assembly at Kochi Muziris Biennale 2023, with Meena Vari of Srishti Manipal Institute of Art & Design (IN) Ewen Chardronnet, Makery (FR) and Maya Minder, Hacketeria (CH).
