”Musical weirdo and visionary” (Vice), Beatie Wolfe is an artist who has beamed her music into space, been appointed a UN role model for innovation, and held an acclaimed solo exhibition of her ‘world first’ album designs at the Victoria & Albert Museum.
Named by WIRED Magazine as one of “22 people changing the world,” Wolfe is at the forefront of pioneering new formats for music that bridge the physical and digital, which include: a 3D theatre for the palm of your hand; a wearable record jacket cut by Bowie/Hendrix’s tailor out of fabric woven with Wolfe’s music; the world’s first 360 AR live-stream from the quietest room on earth and a space broadcast via the Big Bang horn.
Wolfe’s latest innovation is an environmental protest piece built using 800,000 years of climate data to visualize rising CO2 levels, which premiered at the Nobel Prize Summit, the London Design Biennale and COP26. Other recent projects include a collective art campaign in support of USPS with Mark Mothersbaugh and the world’s first bioplastic record release with Michael Stipe. Wolfe is also the co-founder of a “profound” (The Times) research project looking at the power of music for dementia.
