James Bridle is an artist, writer and publisher based in London. Bridle coined the New Aesthetic; his work "deals with the ways in which the digital, networked world reaches into the physical, offline one."[1] His work has explored aspects of the western security apparatus including drones and asylum seeker deportation. Bridle has written for WIRED, Icon, Domus, Cabinet Magazine, The Atlantic and many other publications, and writes a regular column for The Guardian on publishing and technology.[2]


In April 2019 BBC Radio 4 broadcast a four part series by Bridle called 'New Ways of Seeing'[3] examining how technology influences culture and based on John Berger’s Ways of Seeing.
