College & Course:
Wimbledon College of Arts, Alumni & Digital Maker in Residence
Interests in digital making:
I'm interested in systems of objects that interact with each other and their environments. I use combinations of electronic devices and hand-made/low tech things to create sprawling systems that respond to their particular environmental situation. I'm looking at how a space can be physically represented by the behaviour of the objects that exist within it.
I'm interested in the blurred boundary of a system in a given environment: the point at which the space of an artwork ends. I look at autonomous systems, human-machine interaction, the displacement of human labour.
A non-exhaustive list of areas I work in include physical computing, robotics, Internet of Things, circular systems, solar power, replication, lenses, weather stations and space travel.
Contribution to the Collective:
As the Alumni Artist in Residence, I work from the Digital Makerspace, continuing my own research but also collaborating with staff and students in the group.
I'm currently working with Daniel Bandfield on an Internet of Things platform called Aether that makes data sharing easy between objects. We're running a workshop programme with staff and students to explore virtual collaboration, digital making and data exchange.
What you get from the Collective:
The exchange of ideas from other interest areas and disciplines. Sharing knowledge, pooling resources, collaborative making and learning.
