His work incorporates elements of the familiar and the unknown, in turns unsettling and playful. Through this balance Edwards strives to gently guide viewers to unexpected and surprising experiences and conclusions about art, life and our engagement with the world around us.

He then studied electrical engineering and electro acoustics at the Royal Conservatory of The Hague while working closely with musical electronics pioneers STEIM in Amsterdam. .
