This is a selection of projects and works throughout the years.
It includes artistic collaborations which have received funding, personal projects, hardware and software based work. I hope these projects demonstrate the range of the work I have been doing, from film editing to interactive art to working with hardware to build and solder circuits.
SONIC BODIES: A multisensory Exploration
‘Sonic Bodies’ is an immersive and interactive exploration of sculpture through movement and listening. You will be invited to follow the lines, shapes or themes of selected sculptures, and create a real-time soundscape through movement. Using custom software on mobile devices, the activity offers two innovative ways to explore art through listening and moving: one involving the whole body and the other using only your hand. University of Leeds and Leeds Art Gallery, for the Being Human Festival. Nov 2018.

SECRET DEPOSIT BOX 2012
This interactive piece has someone write a secret on paper, which they then insert into the machine like a punch card, they press a button which scans it and saves it as an image file – there is then someone else’s secret printed out for them.

Message bag, submission for CruftFest 2011 at Queen Mary University of London. The bag has an LCD to display messages based on distance, they vary from *smile* to *hacked* and similar but this can be programmed to say anything.
PAVEL BUCHLER – MAKING NOTHING HAPPEN 2010
This is a film that I edited with Final Cut Pro and was finished in late 2010. Pavel was the 2010 Northern Arts Prize winner which was a great affirmation of the quality of work this artist produces. Filmed: Manchester, Leeds, York, Scotland and Berlin.
Allowance 2010This was my first proper app with multiple functions. An Allowance app to help parents and kids track their allowance!

This program re-wrote the entire book, The Interpretation of Dreams, but in completely random order.
Re-writing Freud (touch screen kiosk edition), 2005 Arts Council and British Council funding received. This was first exhibited in the exhibition Un Art de Lectures, in Rennes France. It has since toured Scotland, London, Leeds and an electronic festival Prog:Me in Brazil.
