Nat Goodden

Part-Time Academic Staff

I’ve exhibited my installational and digital work at leading London galleries and internationally and have been closely involved with artist-run spaces in the UK and abroad. At the university, I supervise individual research projects.


I became an artist as a way of linking my passions for ideas and making. Seeing art as a way of asking questions has been key to my work as educator, researcher and studio practitioner. With a background in sculpture and installation, I always say I make situations, not things. I’ve been lucky to have worked with pioneers of the artist-run space, people with a vision who made an important difference to cultural practice. Art has no rules and never stands still – I still love that.

Teaching & Research


With previous extensive experience of teaching on and leading BA and MA Fine Art programmes, Nat now focuses on the supervision of individual research projects, most of them practice-led – MA by Research, MPhil, and PhD.


1: The development of situations in which the processes of perception and cognition can be examined in clear yet nuanced ways.

2: The online mapping of cultural connectivity (Who Knew Whom project).

3: Academic interests include the relations of art and technology; contemporary installational practice; the sculptural role of ‘immaterial’ media.
