My work spans live electronic performances, audiovisual compositions and media art. More recently I have developed a keen interest in the philosophical issues arising from the relationships between art and technology; a process that has so far led me to question under what forms and forces truly creative efforts may, or may not, arise. I have performed live and exhibited both nationally and internationally, My academic writings features in journals and books by publishing houses such as MIT Press, Springer and Taylor & Francis. Currently I am Course Director for the BSc in Creative Media and Interaction Design at UL.
My research interests are: a/v live performances, media art, coding for arts, critical code studies, philosophy of art.
