A leading children's surgeon Dr Simon Huxtable is accused of a crime. Do you convict him, what's the evidence?
This piece of interactive theatre gathers 12 audience members to take on the role of jurors. Sitting them around a table providing select evidence from the Defence and Prosecution. 12 iPad's carefully analyse the decisions you make in real time, providing live opinion polls and interactive documents. Leaving the jurors to question their own ethics but also how we act when required to make a public decision on such a highly controversial topic.

Built as a direct response to "Meet the Watsons" A.M.I continues an unwritten narrative that documents a very unusual part of my life. It explores the theme of self representation and specifically, how we often mis-represent each other through social media.
A.M.I recieved the "Best Creative Award" at Goldsmiths, University of London Degree show in 2017.
When creating artwork I usually have to make custom tools, these tools are often quite useful, as they are designed specifically by me for a task that is usually strange or perhaps where the solution is not as readily available online. They include tools to help analyse metadata and language as well as more visual solutions to help the creation of generative art.
stormkit is currently includes simple, fast, multiple mood sentiment analysis. Allowing for the detection of anger, sadness, worry, scare, positivity and negativity.
Given the recent attacks on freedom by various "forces", the uncertain and unpredictable future of specific rights and my growing interest in cryptography I thought it was a good time to build myself a personal canary of sorts.
Every few days I will generate and sign an image. These images will always contain the date, time and an unique identifier, these will then be signed with my private key and pushed to github.
After studying a formula designed by Italian monk Luigi Guido Grandi I was stunned by the beauty of the resulting curves. So I quickly recreated his formula in c++ using opencv 3.0 and created a twitter bot that tweets new generative art every 2 hours, based on this formula. The code for the entire project is on github and you can view the twitter bot here @grandibot.
Citybreathe is a nonprofit website that allows anyone to track the pollution across London and the south/south east for free, easily viewing historic data and any trends that can be derived. It's possible thanks to the Environmental Research Group of Kings College London which provides the necessary pollution station data via their London Air Quality Network.
My system routinely monitors the stations across the network hourly, storing this data to be further analysed later. As the project is in beta I will be making significant additions to the site, including more visualisations and the ability to mass export data.
"Meet the Watsons" are a set of four projection mapped sculptures who discuss and deconstruct a twitter account live in front of an audience, looking to make you question what you put online, who can access it and the possible tone of your communications. I wanted to expand upon a subject that I looked at previously with another piece 'You probably live in Horsham'1, specifically exploring the security and availability of our metadata2 and what can be derived from looking at it in detail. Asking in a very humanised manner, do you know what you put online? If so, do you think it should be public?
Meet the Watsons recieved the "Best Creative Award" at Goldsmiths, University of London Degree show in 2016.
You probably live in Horsham is an art piece with a strong political theme. Designed to promote discussion around the data capturing techniques proposed by the charter. The plugin collects data discussed in the specification1 and attempts to figure out your personality and character, questioning what the government could know about you but also how safe your data is online. Including whether the mass collection of personal information could lead to becoming a victim of identity theft should this data reach the wrong hands.
