artist, designer, maker, sculptor AND CO-FOUNDING MEMBER OF STUDIO MANIFOLD
Zachary Eastwood-Bloom is an artist, designer, maker, sculptor whose work often explores the increasingly blurring relationship between materiality and digitisation. Zachary graduated with a BA Hons from Edinburgh College of Art before going to complete a MA at the Royal College of Art in London in 2010.
After initially studying Ceramics, Zachary began to explore digital modelling software and digital making processes such as 3D printing in relation to traditional materials and making processes. This has led to a fascination in a notion of one’s place both in terms of space and environment, and time and history, explored through sculpture, drawing, video and sound.
Zachary has exhibited with the V&A Museum and The Royal Academy of Art and was recently awarded the Jerwood Makers Award 2015. Currently, Zachary is the Pangolin Bronze Foundry artist in residence and is working toward a major solo show in 2017.
In 2010, Zachary co-founded Studio Manifold; a collective of nine artists and designers who founded a studio in an east London railway arch, brought together by a shared enjoyment of material and process. The members' individual activities include sculpture, installation, digital art, process-driven product design, drawing, research, teaching, collaborative projects and progressive approaches to age-old ways of making.
