As a practising artist with a PhD from CAIIA (Centre for Advanced Inquiry in the Interactive Arts) under the direction of Professor Roy Ascott, my research continues to explore a theoretically informed computer-mediated approach to the territory between art, technology and consciousness studies in order to position a participatory concept-based art practice. This involves semantically associating ideas and concepts into non-linear multimedia form and digital outcomes have been shown both in the UK and internationally. While my early works in hypermedia articulate the creative thinking of Marcel Duchamp as the initiator of Conceptual practice, more recent pieces concern the application of human-like behaviours to virtual objects, and have expanded from exploring the ideas of Duchamp to, for example, that of the 'big idea' of Charles Darwin culminating in the 'Shift-Life' hands-on interactive installation commissioned for the Darwin bicentenary. In undertaking a critical exploration of Conceptual Art, semantic media and intuitive interfaces which bridge the virtual to the real world, I consider the dialogue between the virtual (digital) realm and the real world, as a semantic space for creative exploration. My interests are cross-disciplinary and I often work collaboratively, I also consider digital curation as a form of art practice, therefore I am regularly invited to speak at a range of subject conferences and events including New Media Theory, Consciousness Studies, Curation and Archiving, Digital Art, Art History, Interactive Gaming, and Museology.
