Working on a new project making some wearable tech using inertial measurement units (IMUs) to measure movement and orientation, electromyography (EMG) to measure electrical potential in muscle, and heart rate monitor strap.
The first day of the SITUATE Art in Festivals lab was spent presenting ourselves to the other artists, provocateurs and people of Hobart in a Pecha Kucha. I kept a journal during the lab and I described my anxiety before presenting as 'a potato sack of nerves'. Perhaps I was taken in by the store room aesthetic of the Founders Room at Salamanca Arts.
This was the first time all of the artists got see and hear what each other does in six minutes, which is a nice prelude to the next two weeks. The videos below are a lo-fi version of the presentations as streamed. I'm in Part 2 and start at around 24 minutes.
I'm super exicited to announce I've been selected to attend the SITUATE Art in Festivals arts lab. The lab takes place at Salamance Arts Centre in Hobart from 21 June to 5 July. Along with 15 other artists we'll undergo a range of workshops in preparation to propose work for WomAdelaide, DarkMofo, MonaFoma, Darwin Festival, Fringe World Perth, Harvest Festival and Vryfees Festival South Africa.

The Edge hosted Brisbane's inaugural BYOB night on Friday 3 May 2013. BYOB is a series of worldwide events, showcasing the works of local artists and their projections. I’ve been playing around with Openframeworks’s implementation of shader language recently and thought it’d be a good place to show off some of my interactive screen works.
