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.

Go Local




               Go Local 2017 — RCA x Hove Park

‘Go Local’ is a collaborative project between five Royal College of Art students from MA Visual Communication and MA Global Innovation Design. In response to the migrant crisis, we invited UK secondary school students from marginalised communities to question the meaning of autonomy. Working closely with leaders of EAL (English as an Additional Language), twenty 11- 16-year-old EAL, migrant and students seeking asylum participated in a one-day workshop.
The project outcome highlights 2017 cuts in government funding that provide crucial opportunities for refugee children to better adjust to their new lives within the UK educational system. Through performance, roundtable discussions, and collage, students questioned what it means to have autonomy when living in a foreign country.
