Output Arts is an art collective founded in 2009. We make site-specific, interactive and participatory audiovisual artworks and experiences.
We engage in a process of collaboration and refinement that brings together traditional and modern artistic techniques. We work with a variety of physical and time-based material – sometimes researched from a community through sensitive questioning – and combine this with thoughtful and careful use of digital technology.
Through this, we generate playful and poignant artworks that distil the enormity of an idea – such as the experience of loss or the wind – into an intimate contemplation. We create surprising and accessible artworks that encourage our audience to be active agents in the discovery of stories that unfold over time.
Output Arts is currently a UK registered partnership between artists Andy D'Cruz and Jonathan Hogg.
Andy D’Cruz has been a practising artist for over 25 years and has produced and exhibited work in the UK and abroad. This has included large-scale sculpture as well as paintings and drawings, for permanent and temporary exhibitions, public outside spaces and more intimate gallery venues.
Jonathan Hogg trained in software and electronics. For over 20 years he has designed and developed large-scale information systems in academia, the finance industry and software start-ups. In early 2009 he decided to focus on art and now creates interactive digital artworks, and multi-sensory installation and participatory art.
Hilary Sleiman (member until 2017)
Hilary Sleiman’s work is influenced by her training in textiles but has evolved to mixed media. Her practice is located within social and conceptual visual art. Most of the site-specific work she produces is informed by the particular history of a given site, often echoing historical connections with the buildings she works within, and encompasses both indoor and outdoor venues, resulting in large-scale interventions.
