Artist Bio

Daniel Oduntan is an interdisciplinary media artist and designer occupying the spaces between visual arts, sound and performance media. An intuitive creative born in Camberwell to parents from Nigeria, Ogun State and whose first job as a young teen was pulling out the stalls on East Street Market. The core of Daniel’s work is asking questions of his spatial reality, which encompasses the built and the multi-sensory environment. Daniel's practice is idea first, medium second, which allows him to create in a style described as explorative participation design: a method of research and speculation to build inclusive futures. From working professionally at the V&A Museum within their digital media and publishing department; leaving in 2019, Daniel has since gone on to work for The Bartlett School of Architecture, The Mohn Centre for Children’s Health and Wellbeing, Warp Records and The Design Museum to name a few.

Soul Complex Unfinished

Soul Complex Unfinished is an interdisciplinary art project that scans the past and present cultural landscape of Southwark and looks to ponder how spacial design can play a part in better supporting current and future diaspora community archives as well as unfinished art works from Black diaspora residents. Abandoned in 2012 and re-visited 2022 the project itself is made up of analogue photography, short film, sound compositions, voice notes and video art. The following articles speak to the insights and process from Daniel’s research and development process on the ‘I Create’ fund.
