Projects
  • Pisstrictions Book
    Pisstrictions BookPisstrictions is a photographic report on public toilets during the age of social distancing. All images were collected through a network of nationwide contributors during the worst time of everyone’s life... the Pandemic. The photos are named and rated on the inventiveness and artful quality of their Pisstriction message. If you want a bit of contemporary piss history, look no further.
  • Pissoramas
    PissoramasPissoramas are small 3D versions of the stand out players in the Pisstrictions book. They are 3D printed and applied to surrounding sets complete with hand written notices and restriction tape. I wanted people to be able to experience these scenes outside of the 2D book, and witness their beauty in a way that made them feel like they had witnessed it themselves.
  • Paint With Your Head
    Paint With Your HeadPaint with your head is an idea influenced by the Oulipo Poetic Group. They worked within strict sets of rules, often denying themselves the use of letters or words to write with to enhance their creativity. I applied this thinking to painting, using your hair as a paintbrush, which would make you unable to look at the marks you were making or the thing you were looking at to paint. This was played out in a life drawing session, with some excellent results.
  • Pythagameter
    PythagameterPythagameter was a commission for the Science Museum Late's. These evening events attract more than 4000 people per session. I wanted to create something that would engage with the audience and also inspire people to look further into the Pythagorean Tuning Scale. I took inspiration from The High Striker fairground game and adapted it to present the Pythagorean Tuning Scale. An air pump pushed a puck up the tube triggering the solenoids to ping the tuning forks. It was a very popular exhibit.
  • Street Verbaliser

    Just graduated from London College Of Communication with First Class BA Hons in Interactive Design Arts which is a practice-led, dynamic and exploratory course examining the relationship between people and experiences through experimental technologies and processes.
