Martin Elliott

Multi-media and Space Design

At MIT, Martin is exploring the intersection of multi media and architecture in design.

Martin Elliott is a musician, mixed media artist, and architect. Currently, he studies at MIT’s architecture school, where he explores a variety of mediums. Inspired by everything from color swatches to film frames, Martin develops mixed media design techniques. After high school, rather than taking the traditional academic route, Martin took some time off to focus on his art and tour with music bands. He was particularly involved in the local music scene of his hometown Detroit. After undergrad, however, Martin’s wide variety of interests began to converge. It lead him to focusing on his art and architecture.

“While painting could be one method of design, film could also one. Twenty-four frames per second or the number of colors in a paint swatch could become a way to design space.”

“I’m interested in how the intersection of multi media and architecture can inform space design. My synesthetic design technique enables me to study a variety of subjects and mediums. The process encourages indulgence and play, but also maintains very real ramifications for my design ideas.”
