I am an artist, designer, teacher and researcher, based in Bristol, UK. I use a mixture of code and traditional media to create installations, pictures, software and other, less easily classified work. My practice focuses on the idea of place, and on the juxtaposition of the physical, digital and imaginary worlds.
Growing up in rural Ireland, I learned to code on an Atari 520ST, writing small programs to draw geometric patterns. Now the programs are slightly larger, but I'm still fascinated by the capacity of simple algorithms to surprise us.
I have a master's degree in mathematics and a PhD in geography from Cambridge University. I've had careers in software development, in academia and in exhibition design, as well a wide range of freelance roles, from data analysis for the fashion industry through to consulting on the geology of fantasy worlds.
As of 2023, I'm part of the leadership team at the Pervasive Media Studio, supporting the community of artists, technologists and academics.
I'm always interested in hearing about new projects. If you have something which could use my skill set, please get in touch.
