exploring new ecologies of creation

My work explores ways of opening up and challenging the nature of creativity itself, in particular through the use of technology. Working sonically and visually, solo and in collaboration, I create live improvised performances, and context-specific generative and interactive installations. Breaking away from familiar uses of technology as a reproductive medium, much of my work exists in real-time and real-space - each moment a unique and unrepeatable experience.

Integrally related to my artistic practice, I also work as a technologist with artists and organisations, specialising in developing and supporting free open-source technology.

Alongside my freelance work, I’ve worked in various posts across the arts & voluntary sectors, including spending 5 years as Arts Officer (Strategic Development) at Oxford City Council. I am now a director at Eye Division Ltd. developing websites and applications for education, charity, arts and business. I particularly specialise in Drupal and Jekyll based development.
