About

Zachary Eastwood-Bloom is an artist and sculptor whose work explores the increasingly blurring relationship between materiality and digitisation. Zachary graduated with a BA Hons from Edinburgh College of Art before going to complete a MA at the Royal College of Art in London in 2010.

After initially studying Ceramics, Zachary began to explore digital modelling software and digital making processes such as 3D printing in relation to traditional materials and making processes. This has led to a fascination in a notion of one’s place both in terms of space and environment, and time and history, explored through sculpture, drawing, video and sound.

Zachary has exhibited with the V&A Museum and The Royal Academy of Art and was awarded a Jerwood Makers Award in 2015. In 2010, Zachary co-founded Studio Manifold; a collective of nine artists and designers who founded a studio in an east London railway arch.

Zachary has lived and worked in Glasgow since 2016.

“This digital residency allows me to delve deeply into a world of new ideas and approaches. Using digital technologies such as 3D scanning and Motion Capture, I will explore bodily movement and the space between dancers through a range of media. Scottish Ballet is a very rich and exciting environment to work in and I think the Digital Season will reflect that.”
