Henry Gonnet is a British/French artist currently based in Newcastle Upon Tyne, UK.
His artworks are an exploration of binary ideas; seated at the intersection of the physical and digital worlds, navigating the space between chance and control. Through a creative coding process he refers to as "generative score writing" he builds systems that play with cause and effect.
He has exhibited widely throughout England - from as far North as BALTIC 39 in Newcastle, to as far South as the Leadenhall Building in London. In 2019 he was shortlisted for the Aon Community Art Award, and in 2018 he project managed the show that won Free Range art week's award for Best Collective.
Gonnet's practice encompasses generative computer art, drawing, sound, installation, and performance.
