Derek Tumala (b. 1986 Manila, Philippines) is a trans-disciplinary artist working in the intersection of art, science and technology with crossing interests in the applied arts and community initiatives. Taking cues from futurism, science and technology, his visual approaches and conceptual derivatives convey an account of exploration, a tangible experience, a sensory reflection. He participated in various platforms such as Art Basel Hong Kong, Salzburg Global Seminar, Tokyo Design Week, Beyond Time Residency Poland. Apart from his practice as a visual artist, he initiated Mvltiverse, a multimedia collective doing experiments with the moving image and STEAM/Projects, a collective of technologists & artists working in art and technology. Tumala works and lives in Manila.
