PROJECTS

My work consists in a number of open ended Projects, which are listed here. Each is an exploration of an area of my interest, or a collaboration with a third party. Some have outcomes at present, but most are works in progress.

Let's Play Fine Art

This project was a response to the discrepancy which I observed between the way in which we write about art and the way in which myself and my contemporaries discuss art in person. I wished to challenge this by presenting informal gallery discussion in the format of a YouTube Let's Play.

Game Mechanics

I am disctinctly interested in representation through mechanics. This medium is becoming more and more relevant with the rise of the internet. I have done a number of what might be called sketches, but this remains a project in the making.

2016 - 2017

Found Things

A project from my third year of University, this work focuses on the value of things discovered in the urban landscape. This resolved into two main themes: Found Information; and Found Utility.

Journals

I keep an A6 sketchbook in my pocket at all times. The sum of these accumulated sketchbooks offers an interesting icon of my artistic practice. I am currently processing an anthology of pages to be published in a small artist's book.

2014 - Present

Jalview Abacus

Made as part of an art-science collaboration with Jim Procter and Geoff Barton at the UoD Life Sciences Department, this sculpture is a representation of the mechanism of the Jalview phylogenetics program. The sculpture was handmade by myself, and is a working abacus which is reversible and can be used for printing.

Minecraft Haywain

I wanted to do something with "games as medium," and to draw attention to the relationship between human and nature portrayed in Minecraft. This had a parallel to the romantic ideals popular in the Victorian era of Folly Building and John Constable.

The Memory Project

This project is an exploration of the role of memory. The present outcome is a set of instructions for the audience to follow. The art event to be considered is the experience of following the instructions.
