Experimental Spatial Capture
Dynamic + Immersive Storytelling




ABOUT

I am a practice-based researcher and lecturer in Transmedia Storytelling for Illustration Animation at Kingston University, London. My work revolves around dynamic storytelling through interaction design, particularly within social and cultural contexts.
I explore the poetic potential of remote sensing technology as a means to augment forgotten landscapes and reconstruct collective memory.

With extensive experience in public-facing live projects, I have collaborated with stakeholders, arts councils, and local communities. My practice advocates for intentionally repurposing volumetric capture tools in visual communication design, fostering relationships with technology that embrace indeterminacy over exact representation.

         D&AD x Sightsavers Installation 2018 — Design and Art Direction Festival, The Old Truman Brewery, London

Collaboration with Abi Daker and Sightsavers. Sightsavers is an international non-governmental organisation that works with partners in developing countries to treat and prevent avoidable blindness and promote equality for people with visual impairments and other disabilities.

The installation was developed as part of D&AD at The Old Truman Brewery, Shoreditch. Inside the space audiences are immersed in RGB light projections that interact with large-format illustrations. When the light changes colour a new story is revealed. Through dynamic storytelling audiences are invited to experience visual impairment in developing countries. The work is accompanied by oral histories of the lived experiences of communities in a Bangladeshi hospital, a village in Nigeria, and a classroom in Senegal.
