Biography

I'm a digital artist, programmer, performer, experimental electronic musician, composer, builder of instruments, and data fetishist. I have a background in computer science, music, computer music, neuroscience, and a PhD in nanotechnology. At Bournemouth lecture in Digital Media Design and I’m Director of EMERGE (Experimental Media Research Centre) at Bournemouth University. I hold a Postgraduate Certification in Education in Practice, and I’m a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (FHEA).

Beneath the umbrella of “sensing data” all my projects seek to connect the multiple sensory registers in which we can think about ecology. In my work, I seek to create a visual/auditory and sensory register of how the ecology of human interactions is evolving, in order to provide cultural evidence of the technology adapted to empower and augment real human interactions, as well as the interaction with the natural or post-industrial environment. I’m interested also in how data could help communities to shape policy development and environmental decision-making...
