Shuster + Moseley

CONCEPTUAL ART STUDIO

Shuster + Moseley is a conceptual art studio led by Claudia Moseley (b. 1984) and Edward Shuster (b. 1986). The studio creates light-mobiles, sculptural installation and immersive, meditative environments reflecting on the nature of consciousness and technology.Working with optics, geometry, light and glass, underpinned by a spirit of collaboration, the artists have developed projects with world-renowned scientists working in neuroscience, cosmology and imaging technologies, as well as architects, engineers and technicians. Their work is equally informed by research in anthropology, cosmology, philosophy, the esoteric arts and the poetics of space. Each project is conceived as an alchemy of elements, bringing this cross-disciplinary approach into focus through immersive and site-specific works that create ambient and meditative experiences.The artists met on a tree-dwelling protest site in the Brecon Beacons, Wales, where they began their collaboration inhabiting a suspended treehouse. Based in London the studio creates temporary and permanent works for public spaces, private collections and international exhibition.Claudia Moseley MRBS, Fine Art and Textiles (Goldsmiths University), MA Environmental Anthropology (Kent University), Foundation diploma Art & Design (Middlesex University). Edward Shuster PhD FRSA MRBS, Doctor of Philosophy (‘The Pharmakology of Light-Time’, European Graduate School), Optics, Geometry and Architecture researcher (Farjam Scholarship, Prince’s School), World Philosophies (SOAS), Esoteric Philosophies (Exeter University)

Our artists Shuster + Moseley Shuster + Moseley were chosen by the prestigious Bucherer for their art to be included in their advertising campaign.

This January, art gallery WE COLLECT and MTArt Agency co-hosted the exhibition Drivers for the Future, a group show curated by Olimpia Saccone featuring works by our artists Enam Gbewonyo, Elisa Insua, David Aiu, Shuster+Mosley and Adelaide Damoah. The exhibition aimed to offer a perspective on the main timely fights that the new generations are standing for, the battles that will lead to a better future.

In 2017, Shuster+Mosley created WHAT MATTERS, two immersive installations at St Oswold’s Church and Churchyard, as part of the Lumiere Festival in Durham. Inside the Church thousands of hand blown glass fragments were suspended from specific locations, arranged according to stages of cosmic evolution from the very early stages of the universe just after the Big Bang and before the formation of denser particles that preceded the “scattering of light”. The glass colours and locations were coordinated according to a spectrum of spherical sections derived from the Cosmic Microwave Background Radiation (CMBR, “relic radiation”)

Shuster+Mosley collaborated with world leading scientists to explore neurological form and function in super-resolution, reflecting on the role of super resolution imaging technologies in relation to broader questions about the nature of consciousness. The residency resulted in the development of a large-scale, tourable, immersive artwork “Microcosmos”: a sculptural environment created from an intricate, precision-engineered network of curved, reflective stainless steel tubes and clusters of many hundreds of translucent, hand-blown glass orbs, illuminated by a series of programmed LEDs that represent brain wave activity cycles that radiate through the structure in constantly evolving patter nation.

The artwork has been created in augmented reality for Onedome, as part of the Unreal Garden in San Francisco. Future Bodies deals with our relationship to screens and questions what dimensions of reality are lost when we experience the world through this plane and what new, spectral possibilities and new forms of reflectivity might emerge by reintroducing dimensionality into its form. The augmented reality format offers the opportunity to explore the screenic world at the interface of immaterial virtuality and physical interaction, where the body is implicated in the experience of technology and the interface of immaterial virtuality and physical interaction, where the body is implicated in the experience of technology and the interface itself becomes the physical spatial medium.

The social sculpture is a collaborative project with artist Natalie Jeremijenko and architects Tate and Harmer. The aim is to encourage relations between nature and culture so as to inspire transparency and perspective, a space that is sensitive to the environment and contemplative, but one that is also radically open to the public realm. The funds generated from the TreexOffice were reinvested in green spaces in the area, aiming to create a virtuous circle.
