Having originally qualified in Fine Art at Trent Polytechnic, Nottingham U.K, from 1997 I began to combine computing with creative work at Loughborough University's computer science Human-Computer Interface department. In 2000-2002 this produced two ongoing collaborative projects, the Emergency ArtLab (2000) and cubeLife (1999), which featured in both editions of "Explorations in Art and Technology" (Springer 2002, 2018). I'm currently an independent researcher at the Institute of Creative Technologies (De Montfort University, Leicester), lecturer in web technologies, and director of an energy data processing company working across the EU. Research interests include magic squares and cubes, the history of number symbolism, order and disorder in mathematical and natural pattern, and computer programming culture. Recent collaborations included a critique of computational creativity, and an online work "Personal Space" that matches diary entries to solar weather. I've delivered various presentations on being an artist working with technology, and mediated between artists and programmers.
