I am an artist and videosmith based in NW England, whose practice combines projection design, interactive video installation, community engagement, and digital textiles. I am interested in the overlap and interplay between digital and analogue hybrid design processes and the possibilities of combining the two in production and performance.
I like to explore ideas in absurdly ambitious ways. I have built cinemas, cast giant iron fidget spinners, and even knitted a scarf for the inventor of the web. I have developed artistic commissions and projects for organisations including FACT (Liverpool, UK), The Lowry (Manchester, UK) Open Data Institute (UK), Royal Opera House (UK), National Film Board of Canada (CA) Quartier des Spectacles (CA, Mutek (CA), Liverpool Biennial (UK), British FiIm Institute (UK), Staro Riga Festival (Latvia), and numerous libraries, museums and local councils in the UK.
I am a part-time lecturer at Manchester School of Art, teaching on the Grephic Design BA. I am also a co-director of Re-Dock – a not-for-profit organisation, developing arts projects beyond the gallery, exploring ways in which communities relate to digital media, ideas and public space.
