Experiencing Environments (2014)

Experiencing Environments (2014)

Recently, I was kindly asked to participate in the first UNSW Art & Design (previously known as COFA) in the new UNSW Galleries on campus. This student exhibition, titled Mighty Healthy, explores Design work that addresses health and therapeutic issues, and takes in a wide […]

The Pen and The Postcard (2013)

Last month, Peter Wildman and I were involved with Electrofringe as a part of the This Is Not Art festival in Newcastle. It was a nice escape from teaching and PhD’ing, and a good opportunity to turn out a work quickly, rather than something that […]

Of Christmas Past (2012)

Of Christmas Past (2012)

Recently, myself and a couple of friends were asked to create an installation piece as part of 107 Projects‘ end of year show. The group exhibition, titled The Christmas Show, was built around the theme of what the Christmas tree means to us in Australia. […]

junkMail (2012)

I have a sign placed prominently above my mailbox: “NO ADVERTISING MATERIAL PLEASE”. It’s regularly ignored, particularly by real estate agents and pizza shops. I decided that a public shaming would be the most effective means of ending the tyranny of wasteful advertising and obviously […]

A couple of updates as I head into the final session of my Honours year:┬áThe first iteration of the interactive device is up and running, and I’m now preparing to deploy it in the participants home. I’ve probably written enough on the electronics process already, […]

All Is Domain (2010)

All Is Domain (2010)

My major project for 2010, All Is Domain, has finally seen the light of day and spent the past week on exhibition at COFA graduate exhibition, The Annual. Like many of the interactive installation works at The Annual, I had my fair share of problems […]

Dusk (2010)

Dusk (2010)

After all the work that Lukasz, Eli and I put into Dusk, I thought a quick video about the work was in order. In the artist talks at Underbelly Arts, I often found it difficult to explain to people concisely just how the project works […]

dataOrigin (2009)

dataOrigin (2009)

There is quite a large gap between this post and the last in terms of work done. Whilst the technology I was developing the project with didn’t change too much, I spent a great deal of my time refining its response to the interaction of […]
