I am an artist and videosmith based in NW England, whose practice combines digital image-making, projection design, community engagement, and machine knitting. I am interested in the overlap and interplay between analogue and digital media, and the possibilities of combining the two in production and performance.
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.
