- Headless GhostHeadless Ghost is a display emulator (dummy plug) that fits discreetly in to the HDMI socket on your computer. Once the Headless Ghost is attached, your operating system detects a connected display and enables the GPU. The GPU hardware is often disabled until a display is attached resulting in poor performance and a limited working resolution for remote users. With the GPU enabled, it is possible to perform for various tasks including high resolution hardware accelerated remote desktop and GPG
- ASTRARIUMAstrarium is a persistence of vision planetary map. Astrarium displays the angular positions of the 8 major celestial bodies (sorry Pluto!) on any given date between 1800 and 2050. Using a segmented mask, Astrarium does away with the complexity associated with rotating arrays of LEDs and is capable of displaying a variety of graphics including analogue clock hands and the phases of the moon. Running at 5400rpm, Astrarium makes use of 3D printed optical baffles, concentric diffusers and an ARM Co
- Various Project at rAndom InternationalPermanent member of the studio since 2010 developing and implementing systems and technology which support and enable Random’s work. Working in across a wide range of platforms, media and technologies for a variety of clients from public institutions to private collectors.

- Future SelfFuture Self studies human movement; what it can reveal about identity and the relationship we have with our own image. The installation captures movement in light creating a three dimensional, ‘living’ sculpture from the composite gestures of those who surround it. Viewers are bound together –in the moment– as an ethereal, illuminated presence. Making its premier through performance, commissioned and supported by MADE, ‘Future Self’ has been extensively explored in a new contemporary dance piece choreographed by Wayne McGregor and scored by Max Richter in response to the installation.6
- What It Isn’tGlass vials, custom machined brass rings, vibration motor, custom circuit board, custom driver software and hardware, behavioral algorithm, computer 444 pendants in a 12 x 37 grid (dimensions variable) A site-related installation What It Isn’t, premiered at Lunds konsthall, creates an audible reaction to the viewers’ physical presence in the space. A number of narrow glass vials, each containing two small brass cylinders and a vibration motor, is suspended from the ceiling. The vibrations make the cylinders collectively rattle. The installation’s ‘behaviour’ and the intensity of the sound it generates will vary in relation to where viewers are located. The human brain is trained to calculate the position of sound-emitting objects or beings incredibly accurately. Sound is one of our most effective ways of sending and processing signals. By generating sound in response to movement What It Isn’t generates life around viewers . A concentrated sensory experience, the work helps viewers to physically experience their own positioning in space.4
- Temporary Printing MachineTemporary Printing Machine’ depicts its viewer in a transient light portrait. As you stand before the the empty canvas, your image is slowly revealed until subject and object become, temporarily, united. The portrait gradually fades away, returning once more to nothingness. Every encounter captures a moment in time, which then dissolves as ethereally as it appeared.
- Swarm Study VI / Small SwarmRandom International’s Swarm Study series is an ongoing exploration of collective behaviour — a sustained interest of the studio since its inception. The installations simulate swarming behaviour three dimensionally, through movement and light. The illuminated ‘swarm’ responds to the presence of those within its vicinity, inhabiting the spatial sphere autonomously, as though it were a living thing. The latest installation in the series, Swarm Study VI / Small Swarm invites a more immediate engagement, through the intimacy of scale and structure, than the studio has previously experimented with.2
- Swarm Study / IIIFor the Victoria & Albert Museum rAndom created a monumental light installation, specific to it’s permanent location above the museum’s Ceramics Staircase. Swarm Study / III is made up of illuminated brass rods, suspended from the ceiling in an arrangement of four large cubes. As visitors move up and down the stairs, so the light follows in swarm-like formations, varying subtly in its intensity. Swarm Study / III translates collective behavioural patterns found in nature into moving light. Though apparently inanimate, the installation is brought to life by visitors’ activity, engaging them with both the swarm itself and the surrounding space of the Museum. Swarm Study/III is visible from the Architecture Gallery and Ceramics Gallery.4
- Study Of YouAssuming the form of a faceted, full-length looking glass, ‘Study of You’ is composed of numerous OLEDs (organic light emitting diodes). As you approach the installation, the movement causes it to reflect your image and gesture , which then slowly dissolves further and further into luminescence.’Study of You’ made its debut at the Abu Dhabi Art Fair in 2011.
