Atomico Data Circles

In september 2009, Albion London approached me to create a series of generative artworks for their client, Atomico Ventures.

The brief was to create a generative system which would take data from a client project (such as company share price, number subscribers, temperature in office – anything they could think to provide, really) and create an artwork which would contain a visual representation of that data.

Working with their design team, I created four different pieces, which take arbitrary feed data and incorporate it into a moving artwork. Additionally, each user can select which data/artwork combination they see by using the control panel on the top right.

The lie is the mortal enemy of the state

In September 2008 I presented a restrospective of my video work. Entitled “The lie is the mortal enemy of the state”, it generally explored themes of propoganda, nationalism, democracy, famine and war.

Ratification

Slaughterhaus Five was a London nightclub I was a managing partner in. The idea for the event “Ratification” sprang from the seeds of discontent with the Gordon Brown administration, the Iraq War and general feelings of political malaise. We decided to do hold election of our own.

Additionally, we partnered with NO2ID to distribute their material and try to drive membership signups. Everyone recieved a NO2ID info pack on the night, containing a badge, a membership form, and a booklet on how to win in an argument over ID cards.

The event coincided with the Russian election which saw Vladimir Putin’s Unitied Russia party recieved 44,714,241 votes.

As part of our performance, everyone was asked to vote, and was photographed with their ballot.
