'Frankly disturbing' artist, writer, jack of all trades, master of some. Hot pink tech drag fake AI.
I make live art, performance lectures, interventions, participatory experiences and live role-playing games, mainly for communities and audiences outside of conventional gallery or performance spaces. I like folklore, magic, silly costumes, museums, absurdity, the uncanny valley, doing things that help people think, improving the world incrementally, and making machines and systems do things their makers wouldn’t approve of.
My most recent projects were DoxBox Trustbot– a fake AI puppet commissioned by The Open Data Institute's Data as Culture Programme– and year seven of The Portland Office for Imaginary History, a satirical tourist information agency for and with the people of Portland, Dorset, commissioned by b-side.
Currently artist in residence at Pervasive Media Studio, working on a flying saucer project through February and March 2022. Yes, really. Say hello, tell me about what you're working on.
