Researching ideas, works, artists and installations in relation to my Master by Project of virology, the work of Bournemouth based artists Boredom Research Afterglow surfaced. Afterglow is Vicky Isley and Paul Smith, 2016 Lumen Award-winning work surrounding epidemiology combines many aspects of big data, biology, technology into a beautiful enchanted experience, breaking down the barriers of art and science through a conjuring of light and motion. Working along Dr Paddy Brock, the piece transforms real data into and visual feats, however, the artists I that this […]
Viral refers to Behaviour like that of a virus, a small infectious agent. Viral is denotive of the word virus that refers to an infectious agent which uses a process of self-replication in order to reach an intended outcome. This outcome in many cases is one of distribution and destruction. Biologically a viral infection is contracted through absorbing the virus through an organ exploiting such process such as inhalation, injection, digestion etc. The virus once entered the body begins to […]
Developing ideas is progressing as more exploration and investigation is taking into the chosen area of virus’s, hosts and technological-biological interplay. Exploring biological and physical viruses I have been investigating different viral diseases which critical endanger humans. They are ranked in order of the most critical to the host. Ebola (1st) five known Ebola viral strains cause Ebola hemorrhagic fever (EHF), which has killed thousands of people in sub-Saharan African nations since its discovery in 1976. The deadly virus is […]
Diving into developing ideas further, exploration of words and concepts have been investigated further to gain a better understanding. Reflecting upon all previous mood boards, ideas and project proposals as far, the following topics of host, virus, digital and biological, resonates with my overal artistic expresion of “Systems and Process” Concept Flow Concept areas which I’m investigating in this project will explore ideas in relation to the processes of: Virus –> Host –> Infection –> Digital & Biological –> Processes […]
Working on the idea of virus as discussed in the previous post, I have been exploring ideas and imagery in relation to the topic area. The idea intends to explore the bridging between virus in the digital and biological. Much exploration has investigated the relationship and similarities between the two different forms of virus’s. Some similarities between them is the need for a host to exploit with an intended purpose of intentional destruction and overtake. Additionally, the process both take […]
Based on one of the initial ideas construction ideas in the pervious post, I have thought about a quick initial tests to see the idea in action. Thinking about the ideas of components, body, viruses a structure of movement, flow and pattern was created.
In developing ideas surrounding the initial concept mood boards in the previous post a series of mind maps and development sketches have been produced. This process is further developing a further artistic direction and conceptualisation that follows previous work and new ideas that have been developed upon. Below is sketches and ideas which have started to emerge reflection on the conceptual ideas. As part of developing ideas I produced some product simulations and visualisation attempting to understanding if […]
Initial Thinking Masters by project I’m developing a final cumulative exhibition piece as part of MA Creative Media Arts. This Post develops my initial thinking and inspiration as part of this project. Using digital and physical mood boards, I explore themes to which relate to the artists own work, themes, medium, context and inspiration.

After many weeks of working on Juxtaproject, I finally exhibited the piece as part of MA Creative Media arts at Bournemouth University. The piece worked fantastic, far exceeding my expectation as its fluidity and playfulness was clearly seen through the interactions of participants.
Setting up each device has taken a series of steps in order to get them exhibition ready. Each device contains a lot of technology which has required preparation in advance. The diagram below simply describes how each element within the installation connects together. The server is running a Node application on a hosted network. The device accesses the network via a wifi connection. 12V DC power runs each device powering the projector and Raspberry Pi simultaneously. The Pi runs an openFrameworks […]
