Barney is Co-Director of Stand + Stare, creating interactive installations, exhibitions and performances. Their automated experiences are often based on historical material and memory, which has led them to work with museums, libraries, universities and a variety of organisations seeking innovative ways in which to open up their archives.

Their work is characterised by a sense of warmth and nostalgia, with tech elements largely hidden, to allow people to focus on tangible objects and physical experiences. Their vision is to retain a distinctive artistic stamp, whilst striving to subvert their audience’s expectations by finding new platforms for their work, from theatre to publishing.

Brother and sister, Barney Heywood and Lucy Telling, established the company in 2009. Whilst they are very much the driving force, they regularly collaborate with people from a range of disciplines including technologists, academics, archivists and even cheesemakers.
