Psychobotanic Installation utilises the inherent electrical connections and resistive properties of plants and their ability to interact and adapt to their environment to create an interactive visual and sonic installation. Visitors are invited to interact with the installation directly, enabling them to create different live audio and visual scenarios. Psychobotanic Installation invites questions, and raises awareness, regarding the consciousness and interactive potentials of plant life, a theme continually explored within popular science fiction from The Day Of the Triffids to Avatar and the… read more
As an intermedia artist, creative technologist and researcher, I work across a variety of sectors for institutions, companies, agencies, individuals and organisations. My research explores past and present futures, working with sound, open source hardware and software, radio transmissions, live data and custom digital processing techniques, it seeks to exploit both emerging and near-obsolete technologies in order to create visual and sonic artworks that challenge popular aesthetics. Influenced by fields including cybernetics, artificial intelligence and science fiction, the resultant works are often realised by exploiting technology’s perceived failings in order to expose otherwise hidden content, or to generate initially indeterminate output that can be used as a foundation for further research and exploration.
