Passive Observations

March 1, 2022.  Blackwell House DEAR MISS FRANCO, I’m compiling new code for my ‘thought experiment’ as you call it. A number of large data set queries that scrape comments and responses to emotionally tackling subjects. Specific words and terms related to sadness. Currently the events accessing these new procedures are completely implausible, or at least […]

A Letter to Faith

A Letter to Faith

There’s something special about a hand written letter. A physical connection to words that is lost through email and texting. I don’t think that the digital revolution has left us without soul or emotion, just that there’s an extra level of communication that can be attained through pen on paper. The way the words are […]

Volvox and Tracing Thoughts

An evening spent wandering on the internet. I like wandering on the internet, it’s kind of like daydreaming in a way. But unlike daydreaming, you can trace your thought process back to where you started. People always comment on the amount of tabs I have open in my Chrome browser. I like keeping lots of […]

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

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 […]

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 […]
