As an intermedia artist, creative technologist and researcher, I work across a variety of sectors for institutions, companies, agencies, individuals and organisations.

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.
