Dr Matthew Flintham

Early Career Research Fellow

About

Matthew Flintham is an artist and writer specialising in cinematic representations of landscape and urban environments, and issues of militarisation, security and surveillance. His work intersects academic and arts practices, exploring speculative relationships between film, architecture, power and place, and the possibilities for creative methods to reveal hidden or immaterial relations in the landscape. During 2014, Matthew was Leverhulme Artist-in-Residence in the School of Geography, Politics and Sociology (GPS) at Newcastle University, and between 2013-15 was Research Associate at the Centre for Architecture and the Visual Arts (CAVA) at Liverpool University.
