Episode #025: Matthew Ritchie discusses the apocalyptic themes in his videos The Iron City (2007) and Raphael (2007), featured in his upcoming exhibition The Morning Line (2008) for the 3rd Bienal Internacional de Arte Contemporáneo de Seville. The Morning Line will be on view October 2, 2008 - January 11, 2009 at the Centro Andaluz de Arte Contemporáneo in Seville, Spain.

Matthew Ritchie's artistic mission has been no less ambitious than an attempt to represent the entire universe and the structures of knowledge and belief that we use to understand and visualize it. Ritchie's encyclopedic project (continually expanding and evolving like the universe itself) stems from his imagination, and is cataloged in a conceptual chart replete with allusions drawn from Judeo-Christian religion, occult practices, Gnostic traditions, and scientific elements and principles.

Matthew Ritchie is featured in the Season 3 (2005) episode Structures of the Art:21—Art in the Twenty-First Century television series on PBS.
