About




Madelyn Byrd (they/them b.1992) is an interdisciplinary artist, musician, DJ, and MSc. Neuroaesthetics student based in London and Berlin.

Through creative world-building, Madelyn prefigures fantastical ecotopian portals that investigate the surreal aesthetics of post-modern and contemporary panoramas. Their body of work seeks to dissolve limitations to reveal multifarious beauty in connection and creative empowerment.
Utilizing variegated mediums - mixed media collage, film, poetry, sound, and curation - they concretize digital test-sites for queerness, ecological harmony, and collective interconnectedness formulating a playground for the possible. 



Madelyn is a founding member of MOLD Collective, an anti-capitalist collective that supports creative process, critiques of care, and ecological attunement. “We seek to address the intuition that something is greatly amiss in our reality, while, at the same time, we cultivate a sense of wonder at our planet, our communities, and the complex relationships between ancient and future knowledges. If it sounds esoteric, then that's because we're just that type of people. In each of us is a dynamic range between practical reasoning and amorphous dreamworlds. We've realized that in harnessing this range together, we find the tools we need to process this very messy paradigm we share as contemporary arts practitioners.”

Their musical moniker, Slowfoam, is an eclectic patchwork of contorted ecological soundscapes, sparkling ambiance, fuzzy poetics, and obfuscated jazz and pop.  

Byrd is a monthly resident at Internet Public Radio.
