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.

Sublime Temporality




          Sublime Temporality 2017 — Queen’s Park, Preston Park, Modena Road, Brighton. Cliffs and Beach, Rottingdean

‘Sublime Temporality’ augments urban landscapes in East Sussex, England at night. Streets, parks, and beaches are considered communal spaces by day but are deemed antisocial and unwelcoming environments by night.

Through the projection of moving images onto natural and manmade structures, these spaces undergo a temporary metamorphosis into a realm of temporal sublime. This transformation offers passersby a break from the expected, a sense of wonder and a desire to linger longer.The project disrupts the cultural inclination to capture environments through a technological lens, opting to capture technological intervention within the environment itself through performance and documentation.
