Interactive & Reactive Systems

I am particularly interested in systems that are contingent upon their environment and viewers, that adapt over time and that are able the learn, particularly using neural networks.

Huey-Dewey-Louie Climate Clock is a collaborative work between Usman Haque, Haque Design + Research and myself as part of the The Climate Clock Global Initiative, and is one of three proposals to receive a FUSE:_ cadre/montalvo artist research residency.

Siphonophora is a floating collection of devices able to sense and react to a range of environmental parameters, a collaborative work between Usman Haque, Haque Design + Research and myself.

EM Cicadas is a system of biologically inspired neural entities able to sense each other acoustically and the electromagnetic fields that surround them. This project is currently under development and seeking funding.

Murmur is a self generating audio composition derived from ambient sounds which exhibits hysteresis. As a site specific installation it provides an ever changing sequence of sounds contingent upon those who observe it.

Evolving Sonic Environment is a collaborative work between Usman Haque, Haque Design + Research and myself to create an acoustically coupled physical neural network able to perceive the occupancy of a space.

Painting With The Eyes, an experimental project with Dr Karina J Linnell to develop a human computer interface using an eye tracker for the purpose of rendering artistic images.
