Michael Takeo Magruder is an American artist based in the UK who works within the fields of New and Interactive Media. He received his formal education at the University of Virginia, USA, graduating with distinction in Biological Sciences.

For the past decade his artistic practice has reflected upon society's data-driven and information-saturated existence through the examination of international news communications. By recombining the notions of art and media, he has analysed interconnections between the individual and the pervasive media network; a questioning of product vs. process, knowledge vs. stimulation, fact vs. perspective.

His artistic production has been exhibited worldwide and encompasses an eclectic mix of forms, ranging from futuristic stained-glass windows, digital lightscreens and modular light-sculptures to architectural manipulations, ephemeral video projections and interactive network installations. His current explorations and research embrace 3D stereoscopic projection, immersive multi-sensory environments and interactive non-linear narratives for network/gallery settings. His work in these fields is presently supported by Turbulence.org, King's Visualisation Lab: King's College London and Arts Council England.
