Research outputs: Mike Windle on Edinburgh Research Explorer

Michael spent his early life in various parts of UK, Middle and Far East before studying drawing & painting at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art Dundee finishing his postgrad in 1984. From 1987 he was resident in Acme Studios East London (now the site of Zaha Hadid’s Olympic Aquatic Centre) and then Delfina Studio Trust.

From the beginning of the 90s with the introduction of PCs in the studio environment Michael’s work tended to track the outputs that were possible... firstly screen-based works, moving on to print as resolution became higher, interactive pieces (until he realised creating multiple-pathways made the workload impossible for one person), and more recently immersive video. He has a strong sense that his video work is highly idiosyncratic and contains perhaps the same slippery texture as he has explored with oil and canvas previously.
