MacMurtrie is internationally recognized for his large-­‐scale, performative, robotic installations, and
interactive public sculpture. MacMurtrie 
has  exhibited  widely 
in  America,  Europe, 
and  Asia,  and 
has received numerous awards and grants, including five grants from the
National Endowment for the Arts, Fundación Telefonica / Vida Life,
NYFA, Art Matters, CEC Artslink
and Ars Electronica. 

MacMurtrie
is the Artistic Director of Amorphic Robot Works (ARW), a collective of
artists, technicians, scientists, and engineers he founded in 1991. Since
2005, MacMurtrie/ARW have focused on developing “soft machines” or inflatable
robotic sculptures that engage their environment through cyclical air exchange
and metamorphic transformation. 

In 2012, MacMurtrie, Geo Homsy and Bill
Washabaugh won San Jose’s Climate Clock competition with Organograph, a proposed 75-foot tall kinetic sculpture responding
to Climate Change.
