I seek pioneering discoveries, the joy of risk, the chance to witness the beauty in the creation of new knowledge, processes and prototypes. I’m driven by the sharing, collaboration, education and cultural dialogue that art and creativity can inspire. I’m an artist, creative director and inventor working at the intersection of moving image, large scale interactive installation, performance and projection.
After 3 years research we finally projected images of Edweard Muybridge’s Horse in Motion onto the clouds direct from an aeroplane.
Our journey takes us from the initial inspiration of a US Military projection weapon through a series of prototypes developed through conversation and collaboration, pilots, scientists, makers, early cinema specialists, weapons experts, cultural theorists. artists, sailors and cloud appreciators. All leading to a series of successful flights with the Laser Zoopraxiscope Mk6, a redesign of Edweard Muybridges’ projection technology from 1887 repurposed with a laser light source. This will be the first presentation of this project since it’s initial success in 2015, described as a ground breaking world first by New Scientist Magazine.
