Matt Haffner currently resides in Atlanta, Georgia with his family. In addition to working on his art, Haffner is an Assistant Professor of Photography in the art department at Kennesaw State University. He was originally drawn to street art, since he enjoyed the danger, the giddiness of getting away with something, and the ability to create work on a large scale. He has since moved away from street art, but he still uses wheat paste, markers, vinyls, stencils and other street art tools for his current work. Haffner has exhibited his art both regionally and nationally.

Whitespace and the galleries of i45 are pleased to announce “Convergent Frequencies”, a site specific art installation commissioned by ArtBox, a collaboration between i45 and Possible Futures. The event will take place at the intersection of Krog Street and Irwin Street/Lake Avenue, where three local artists – Matt Gilbert, Matt Haffner & Nat Slaughter — will reinvent the empty lot with three large shipping containers using images, film, and sound, while simultaneously celebrating the surrounding neighborhoods.
Each evening at dusk, media artist and designer, Matt Gilbert, will present his new video inspired by the modularity of the brain’s vision system and the similar separation of color and movement in digital video. Matt Haffner’s contribution will be a series of narrative portraits applied to the exteriors of the three shipping containers. His silhouetted figures play out scenes with a background of Urban iconography that relates specifically to the Inman Park, Old 4th Ward, Little Five Points area that both he and the works inhabit. Artist and designer, Nat Slaughter will convert the interiors of containers into a series of sound installations of binaural field recordings gathered from walks around Old Fourth Ward, Inman Park and the spaces in-between.
