an artist and researcher interested in lots of things. Dance, Robots, sometimes the two together. Smart systems, not so smart systems that are still learning. Antarctica, because of its deadly beauty and irreplaceable nature. Being able to see, hear and touch digital data in a physical world.
Along with colleague Adam Nash I was the 2019 / 2020 Australian Antarctic Arts Fellows travelling on the final voyage of the RSV Aurora Australis to Antarctica.
Robots are a fascination to me, how they learn to move, how they might collaborate and learn from humans, how we can co-create and work together.
I’ve been working with immersive digital environemnts for a long time. In the early days of “Dance Tech” mostly with an interest in movement. Humans, robots, software agents, systems – movement is life.
How we learn from each other often defines our relationships and it is no different in human – non human learning. Discovery and development rather than rote and programmed is good for humans and good for non humans.
