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.

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.”
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.
