Nick Wishart

Performer/media artist

Nick Wishart’s main area of artistic practice is music, sound, video and embedded electronics.

Nick adapts and repurposes existing and emerging domestic technologies and intuitive physical interfaces to create new audio/visual interfaces. Wishart uses embedded electronics, sensors, audio-visual production and circuit bending to create interactive devices such as the bioluminescent jellyfish featured in ERTH’s Prehistoric Aquarium as well as an RGB sensitive chameleon commissioned for Vivid at Taronga Zoo 2016.

In addition to Nick’s musical composition work he creates unique electronic instruments using circuit bending techniques and is a founding member of the all toy band Toydeath. Formed in 1995, Toydeath have played throughout Australia with notable performances at the Sydney Biennale 2010, Big Day Out, The Great Escape as well as international tours to Europe, USA and Asia.
