In 2011 two visual artists, Marty Wong and Tolmie MacRae met when their respective bands
Meniscus and Mish performed at The Annandale Hotel. Their mutual interest in the visuals arts,
performance and live music (and Marty owning a video projector) was the start of an ongoing
collaboration that in 2013 officially became Tame the Pixels.
Tame the Pixels were founded on the understanding that a collective mind is greater than its
individual parts. We’re open to working with fellow artists to incorporate more artistic forms into
the collective, often calling on friends as collaborators when needed to achieve our creative goals.
Fellow collaborators have included Dennis Watkins (Sydney Opera House / newtheatricals),
Paul Mac (Musician/Producer), Brendan Maclean (Musician), Matt Format (Performer),
House of Mince (Club Promoters), Velvet Hammer (Club Promoters) & Tortuga Studios
(In the Night Garden).
Martin (Marty) Wong is a digital producer & mixed media artist based in Sydney, Australia.
Currently studying a Bachelor of Digital Media from the UNSW - Art & Design his works incorporate digital media, graphic design, digital/analogue photography, interactive and installation art practices.
In 2015 Marty was successfully offered a position in the Fine Arts Residency Program through Brand X providing him a work studio to further support his artistic development and career sustainability.

Tolmie MacRae is a digital artist predominately working in video. His practice has moved towards interactive installations and theatre. He is interested in the nexus of digital technologies and video with human movement and emotion exploring a synergy of the physical and digitally ephemeral. Tolmie along with Marty is interested in collaborations of all scales believing a project is greater than the sum of its parts.
