I am an artist, educator and researcher working between the fields of science and art. My practice is often collaborative and distributed across many mediums, including workshops, drawing, sculpture, installation, and sound art. Projects often take scientific experiments and concepts as a starting point; these are then re-created and re-invented, outside of their scientific context. This process leads to new lines of enquiry and experiments which become the basis for new artworks and workshops. The work often incorporates live processes: generative sound, self-contained ecosystems, or illusory perceptions.
I am a member of several artist collectives including, Proximity, para-lab, and Owl Project. Owl Project is known for performance [sound art] and sculptures that combine elements of crafts and electronics. Most notably, we were commissioned to create ~in collaboration with Ed Carter to devise ~Flow, as part of the 2012 Cultural Olympiad,a floating water mill that powered an installation full of mechanical wooden and electronic musical instruments which responded to and data collected from the river water.
