Neuron Narratives

Neuron Narratives

I toyed with the idea of interactive multi-narratives a number of years ago, starting with a project called ‘FMRL – The Life of a Fly’… It didn’t really go anywhere and this is the remnants of where I got. I also worked on a number of interactive installations which allowed dancers to create real-time stories […]

Forgotten Portraits and Fragmented Memories

My life at the moment is completely absorbed in Vestige. I’m constantly analysing every moment anyone mentions memories and even my own memories that come to me during the day. I have been researching into memory but memories are such an integral part of life it’s easy to get consumed by thinking about them. But […]

Islands of Memory

Islands of Memory

In amnestics with anterograde amnesia, memories of post-onset autobiographical experiences, if present at all, are typically barren and impoverished. However, there have been sporadic reports of islands of memory–memories that are vivid, detailed, and specific to time and place. Memory is hard to define. It’s hard to describe what it is that you see when […]

Somewhere You Loved

Somewhere You Loved

Every time you recall a memory the proteins that form the memory are reconstructed. Memory isn’t an inert piece of data that sits dormant until accessed, it’s continually being destroyed and recreated; dying and being reborn. Every time the proteins coalesce and the neurons fire a little piece of the memory is changed. Remembering is an act […]

Lost in a Forest of Neurons

There she stands amidst a forest of neurons. A vista through every single thought you’ve ever generated. Nestled somewhere between that blanket you had as a child and lazy summer days. She stands still. So many trees lay fallen. So many memories lost. Yet this analogy isn’t quite right; “Every cell seems to have a […]

Portrait of F Schmelz

Frederick Schmelz did time in the 1920s and 1930s on numerous charges, including larceny as a bailee, fraudulent conversion and possession of cocaine. Schmelz was a shipping provider who was charged with having cocaine in his possession. He would apparently provide a client with a sample of good quality cocaine and then sell them a […]

Triangles to Stare At

These things keep coming to mind when I think about hierarchical procedures and taxonomies. Scale can visualize additional information, such as priority or quantity. But my good friend Biff has been casting his eye upon my visual mutterings and staring at them for some time. The ones he’s been staring at are equilateral, which I […]

A Portrait of Jonathan Wright

I’ve worked with Jonathan a number of times of the past few years. He has an interesting selection of hats; his art director hat, his prop maker hat, his radio enthusiast hat, his artists hat and probably many more hats that I haven’t seen him wearing yet. He’s a special breed of human that cares […]

Interface Concepts

Interface Concepts

These aren’t traditional designs for a UI, more of an abstract concept based on some research and thoughts. During creating these I did come up with some ideas involving multi-layered cylinders that might be an interesting development.

A Portrait of Ryan Wyatt

  This is Ryan, he’s a well renowned chap. As director of the Morrison Planetarium at California Academy of Sciences, he’s directed some of the most breathtaking fulldome films I have experienced. I’ve known him for a number of years now, usually meeting at fulldome festivals around the globe. We have shared a few beers […]
