“It’s easier to ask forgiveness than it is to get permission.” – Grace Hopper
I’ve been working with interactive, time based visual art in public, private and virtual spaces since 1999 and strive to make work that inspires expression; the use of art as a tool for social change or something simply beautiful to gaze upon or think about. I’d like to think that some of what I do inspires people to make the world a better place for themselves and others through collaboration, the sharing of ideas, experimentation and technology.
“Do not seek to follow in the footsteps of the wise; seek what they sought.” – Bashō Matsuo
I have always been fascinated by the fusion new and old technologies, methods and processes. This often takes the form of expanded cinema meeting interactive installation and devices. I am a practicing projection bomber (guerilla outdoor projection) & currently working on a series of projections from moving vehicles and the theoretical possibilities of large scale interactive installation.
“Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.” – Alice’s Adventrues in Wonderland, Lewis Carroll
My current areas of research are in non-lethal weapons, mind hacks, open source forms of technological gesture based expression. Collaboration is core to my practice and shown by the diverse range of clients and people I work with including: Musicians, Composers, Writers, Illustrators, Programmers, Scientists, Architects, Engineers, Sculptors and other film-makers.
