Hi, my name is Matt Artz and I am a business anthropologist working at the intersection of user experience (UX), product management, and strategy. Using the methods and theories of anthropology, I unlock hidden insights by studying the people behind your products, culture & strategy. In my spare time, I speak, write, compose music and photograph everyday life.
I am the Head of Product and Experience at Cloudshadow Consulting and the Founder of Azimuth Labs.
Cloudshadow is a next-generation consultancy and venture resources firm offering user experience (UX) design and software development services.
Azimuth Labs is an ethnographic research consulting firm offering product development, organizational culture, and corporate strategy consulting.
I speak on the topics of anthropology, user experience (UX), product management, and consumer genomics.
I’ve written for the following publications.
Experiments in sound.
Nychthemeron is an ambient musical journey through 24 hours of a day. It is intended to transcend the recording medium and invoke the mood and atmosphere of a lived environment that is both natural and urban. Combining musical landscapes with found sounds, it creates a soundtrack reminiscent of what we hear when we listen carefully to the silence and noise that perpetually surrounds us.
