Chad Chatterton

Chad Chatterton graduated with a B.A. in Japanese Studies and Art History in 1991. He followed up these studies with a B.F.A. in painting from the V.C.A.

He has been exhibiting since 1996 and has also written for Art and Text and Like Art Magazine. In 2000 his interests culminated in a body of work comprising 6 exhibitions including a curatorial project at 200 Gertrude Street. This body of work collectively explored the way computer games impact on our experience of place.

Since that time he has developed these ideas from the computer game developers’ perspective at the selectparks media lab in Melbourne, where he co-directs the on-line computer game based project acmi{park} for the ACMI. He is also the recipient of the Australia Council Tokyo Studio 2002. Chatterton hopes to further critically engage with online gaming and virtual place-making, highlighting its important function in contemporary culture.
