Klänge, Musik und Soundscapes

Last year I was contacted by my good friend Jürgen Rienow of Kiel University in Germany to ask if he could use an image from Vortex for their 2014 Yearbook of Immersive Media. The topic for the book was sound and music within immersive spaces so he also asked if I’d write an article on my […]

Oh Yellow Ocean

The ocean is magical. Living in the middle of England means that visits to see the ocean are rare, and it still has an air of excitement every time I see it. I miss the ocean. I really look forward to seeing it again. You know, that moment you drive over the brow of a […]

Love Stories

When I was around 10 years old me and my friends found a wooden chest buried under some junk behind some garages in our village. Inside the chest was a plethora of love letters, hand written and between two ‘grown-ups’, so there were plenty of erotic passages discussing things my 10 year old mind could only […]

Munny Mappin, Munny Munny Mappin… Just some little tests projection mapping my Munny. http://vimeo.com/105711867 It’s pretty basic but it’s just an experiment. I can just imagine mapping a whole load of these chaps, all with unique and dynamic designs. It would make a pretty cool exhibit. The Map: https://vimeo.com/105700212 Swag Munny:

Tumbling in Turmoil

I’ve been working on Vessel for over a year now. After working on the script again for a couple of months, I’ve returned to working on the cameras, which is integral to the story and immersive nature of the film. I’m trying to create a feeling of love at first sight. That most immersive sensation. […]

iX Symposium 2014

I love stories. Taxi drivers are the best for stories. They are the modern day story tellers, honing their stories and storytelling to perfection with every new fare. Charles Dickens probably picked up a tale or two from a ride in a Hackney Carriage. So my story of iX begins with a taxi driver on […]
