Andrew Roberts is a mexican artist and writer. He incorporates elements of gameplay, roleplay and worldbuilding into his multi-platform practice, recognizing in these mechanisms a cultural structure where consumption and production become one. Researching the material dimension of horror, Roberts’s digital animations, installations, sculptures and poetry treat colonial agents as possessed images and haunted spaces. He is primarily concerned with representational systems, military technology and the parasitic relationship between Mexico and the United States of America, often exploring the links between optics, warfare and entertainment.

CCU Tlatelolco, Mexico City

Towards Electromateriality, 2018, installation view at Centro Cultural Universitario Tlatelolco, Mexico City


Excerpt from Towards Electromateriality, 2018, 4K CGI video, color, sound, 8:55 min.; automotive paint on 3D prints and stainless steel light stands, variable dimensions



Towards Electromateriality is a manifesto introducing us to the world of the new flesh; a reconfiguration of reality mediated by the existence of high speed electronics, assassin algorithms and the atomic materiality of all digital media. Recurring to the visual languages of cosmic horror, warfare video games and dystopian science fiction, it draws both conceptual and aesthetic parallels between occultism and black boxes; alchemy and electromechanical engineering; the supernatural and the physical invisibility of virtual realms.
