It also has an ultraviolet status led ; ) The circuit is essentially the famous Atari Punk Console (but slightly customised), and […]

An experiment exhibited as part of the Darklight 2010 Film Festival at Filmbase, in Temple Bar. The piece was included in the Dodo Collective exhibition Points of Departure. The piece is essentially a data visualisation, illustrating the waveforms as a virtual landscape in order to generate an audio-responsive narrative. The pure data patch and subsequent […]

As with much of my previous work posted on this blog, this experiment deals with the correlation between site and sound – in this case the site is virtual, and is made tangible through the controlling of sound. This piece is not necessarily intended as an artwork. Rather, it is a simple attempt to display […]
