With work that facilitates social-interaction through its simplicity, he is currently working on a number of Processing based projects, including the creation of the social-networking based installation (A MySpace Constellation) that has been exhibited in London, Manchester, Edinburgh & Köln. As well as a number of privately commissioned, permanent and non-permanent installations. He is also considering an application for Arts Council funding to enable the development of a large-scale forest based situational-installation tentatively titled 'Louise'.
He continues to work with Heidi Klang on the social-collaborative No-Wave music and performance project 'hum' that erases the line between audience & performer.
An erstwhile lecturer, he has previously taught and led workshops at several institutions on the topics of both graphic and interaction design and hopes to return to teaching one day.
