Fascinated by societal sustainability I am interested in unusual, new materials and how I can manipulate those. I see myself as a pioneer who, by means of combining technology, art and science, shows how art can contribute to a strategy of sustainable development.


Since graduating in 2013 I have focused on understanding, controlling and manipulating unusual materials. In projects such as Filter Factory (2013) and Leek Packaging (2017), I have explored the possibilities of using waste streams to create new opportunities. Since 2015 I have been combining waste streams such as overdue foods with new, promising technologies in synthetic biology. This resulted in projects like The Art of Deception and The Meat Project.


Within my work I combine different media, using techniques and media tools either to experiment and document or to strengthen the message with video and visual images.

My work has been shown in a variety of museums, galleries and exhibitions in Belgium, France, The Netherlands, Italy, USA, Austria, Hungary, United Arabian Emirates, China, United Kingdom, Ireland and Germany. My work is part of several private collections in Europe and the USA. "The Meat Project" is part of the permanent collection of The Centre Pompidou, Paris.

Isaac Monté collaborates with In4Art for the project Prosthetic X.

Further on his work is supported by Creative industries fund nl, SIDN and V2_Lab for the Unstable Media
