Raspberry Pi

I use the excellent Raspberry Pi when I need a powerful compact computer.
Programming in Python, I often hook these up to my own projection mapping software and adhoc mobile phone controls.

    Teaching and Lecturing

    I am an educator, and enjoy encouraging and teaching people from all ages and backgrounds.17 years as a part time lecturer at Brighton University. Although challenging to be part of such an industrial academic machine, I try my bit to keep the focus on education. I’ve taught as a part time lecturer / tutor at Teaching and Lecturing

    Electronics

    I was very fortunate to have a dad who encouraged me to try electronics and we used to buy ‘Everyday Electronics’ magazine and do projects together. This early exposure and especially the learning that it’s ok to make mistakes, has helped me in life to be confident to try new things, and at least to Electronics

    Glastonbury 2009-2023

    Working with Copperdollar, over 12,000 people pass through our coffin doors every season! Lots of fun Kinect VJ’ing and watching and learning from people interact with my installations.

    The Wrong Channel

    I wrote some snap-cam filters to make some augmented reality games which were used during a live performance broadcast.Collaborating with Zöe aka The Wrong Numba, it was fun to explore ways of performing during lockdowns and social distancing.

    Motion Tracking

    I’ve done a fair amount of work with different motion tracking technologies. Using 2D cameras; the 3D Kinect; Polhemus magnetic field mocap wear; TensorFlow AI framework. 3D Kinect and cameras as user interfaces; for performers and audience participation.As well as using the Microsoft Kinect in it’s various iterations, with Unity3D and with my own C++ Motion Tracking

    Interactive Table

    Utilising the very capable 7th Sense projection mapping software, I created a Unity3D app using a Kinect 3D sensor to make an interactive table for the Diageo international drinks company. The interactive table worked in conjunction with lighting and multiple projections so that the users could use it to tell a story.

    Internet Of Things

    I enjoy using my hands and I enjoy working with tactile real world environments, so I enjoy projects which require a little software, a little electronics, a bit of motors or buttons or some other sensor or interesting display/output systems, which so often go hand in hand with IoT devices. I was commissioned to co-design Internet Of Things

    Skeledance

    Motion capture and time synched animation.The Skeledance is a choreographed dance routine in Copperdollar’s ‘Back of Beyond’ at Glastonbury.Our Day of the Dead performers flank the projection of a skeleton performing the same dance. We manage to get the whole dance floor participating!Introduced to Glastonbury in 2015, I used a Kinect2 to motion capture a performer doing Skeledance

    Creatures – consequences

    I created a browser friendly Unity3D app which allowed users to construct their own creatures from different segments.

    Escape Rooms and Paradox Place

    A wrote an escape game galled ‘Strootak’ which was a version of the psychological game in which you are presented with a word spelling a colour, but the colour of the text itself is a different colour… You work against the clock to press the button which matches the colour of the text.. It’s harder Escape Rooms and Paradox Place

    Design Season

    I used three.js and microsoft code to develop a javascript based web app allowing visitors to the site to create their own designs.
