Radio News is a site-specific art installation consisting of approximately twenty digital alarm clock radios. (depending on the installation space). The radios are arranged into suspended columns of differing heights, and receive transmissions containing individual words cut from the latest global financial news headlines. These words are spoken by a remote synthetic voice and broadcast at randomly generated frequencies via a digitally controlled FM radio transmitter. This results in a frequency controlled three-dimensional sound diffusion system, where synthetically… read more

These recording experiments involved putting into practice the some of the techniques explained and developed by Hare (2010) and Onley (2011) regarding the detection and recording of electromagnetic radiation (EMR) and electromagnetic fields (EMF”s). Hare (2010) describes a technique for detecting and recording the radio wave energy from a mobile phone. He explains that loop antennae of specific measurements resonate at a specific frequency and are therefore capable of detecting different EMF”s from different sources…. 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.
