FILM

Creative

I try to focus on suggestion, the art of subtlety, the beauty of images and the realisation that everything doesn't always need to be explained. As a musician I am also interested in the relationship between images and sound and how the two can become a seamless energy of affect in a cinematic space.

INTERACTIVE

I make games, interactive spaces, stories and experiments. I am interested in interactivity as an art form, as a means of expression and the ways in which these kinds of spaces can impact a player.
I Remember The Rain

I REMEMBER THE RAIN (2012)

I Remember The Rain in an interactive short story with an emphasis on mood and atmosphere. The ambitions of this work were to make something immersive and emotional within a short space of time that would be visually cinematic while embedded in retro aesthetics.

OTHER PROJECTS

I have worked on many projects over the years from prototypes to finished games. Most of this stuff is unreleased and incomplete so I have put together a short video showcasing some of these abandoned experiments.

MUSIC

I learned to play guitar when I was 17 and have been expanding my repertoire ever since to include bass, drums and vocals. Alongside writing and playing music I am completley obsessed with recording and production. My home studio consists of an out-dated computer, a bunch of second hand instruments and a pop filter made out of stockings and a coat hanger. Never the less, I am constantly striving to learn more about the art and am always working on new projects, many of which you can check out here!

ART

DRAWINGS

I do all my line work with a black pen on paper and then scan the picture to be coloured in Photoshop. I've considered getting a tablet before but I kind of like the mixture of hand drawn and digital elements and the effect that the combination creates. If I had to describe my style I'd say it's Tim Burton meets Dr. Seuss in a sci-fi, steampunk inspired setting.


WRITING

Thesis

REPRESENTATIONS OF INTERACTIVE SPACE

I wrote my master's thesis on constructions of interactive space in screen mediated environments. This exploration was conducted in reference to conceptions of space established by Henri Lefebvre and David Harvey through the lens of affect and assemblage theory. The main focus of this study was on virtual space as a recursive, affective space driven by the player, their experiences and expectations. This research was practice-led and involved the creation and theorisation of my own works in relation to existing theory and practice.
