The destruction in 2007 of the Chinese Fenygun 1-C weather satellite and the accidental collision in 2009 of the American Iridium 33 into the Russian Kosmos-2251 craft, have generated over 150,000 known debris objects that orbit the Earth at high speed on low earth orbits. These threaten vital communications and navigational infrastructure, and often intersect the orbit of the ISS several times a day, at speeds upwards of 7km/s.
This piece shows 15112 human-made objects larger than 10cm currently orbiting the Earth as tracked by the American agency space-track.org, highlighting the extent of human influence as it reaches into space, a sign of the unrelenting expansion of the anthroposphere into the universe.
Orbital Debris was created as a commission for the Digital Shoreditch 2015 digital exhibition.
A live Ident / live visual reel for Berlin's #UNIT Festival, displayed as an installation at the entrance, as well as between speakers and acts. It uses Three.js to render a delaunay-triangulated point cloud generated from the attendant's publicly available facebook profiles.
A HTML5 Implementation of Conway's Game of life in an equilateral triangular grid. Initially created on processing as an audio visualiser for my live visual performances, I decided to port it to HTML5 in order to be able to display it on mobiles and desktops with ease. It allows the user to take captures of the state of the grid, but it's best enjoyed live
Noise is the basic currency of computer graphics, and for some reason, an adjective for weird music. In these captures from my live noise field synth module, you can explore the relationship between noise and colour.
The following gifs attempt to capture the excitement and geometric dance of my live visual performances. They have been mostly captured from the sound-reactive Processing sketches that I use for my live performances, which create, adapt and remix shaders found on line, connecting them to music to properly stimulate the audience's visual cortex.
The Landscape Of Things
The internet of things is becoming part of our commonplace landscape. In this series of collages, I'm exploring a world in which connected devices have conquered our lives, and become part of our landscape.
Created for Telemetry in 2010, it provided Emmy award winner agency Telemetry with live information on their intelligence collection servers.
When making this piece, the emphasis was put on creating a system what was both useful for the employees and able to convey a visual metaphor for explaining visitors or potential investors the nature of the technology used.
