Why do we do it after all? [Nov 16]

.. To ‘record’ the experiences of the dynamic web is like taking photos of morning dew: fragmentary and one-dimensional, unsatisfactory. The future internet, consisting of machine intelligence communicating with speech rather than all these helpful words on ‘pages’, is even tougher to pin down.

It's Nice That | “I love the work I get to make. But I wish it didn’t seem so kooky”: Google Creative Lab’s CD Tea Uglow on the friction between culture and digital tech

..by default I am pro-technology. But I also present as an artist. I’m not a coder, nor particularly good at art, I just like potential.

Love at Fifth Site [2017]

Falling in love can leave us lost for words, even though there’s plenty racing through our head. Created by by Google’s Creative Lab and Grumpy Sailor, this quirky set of interactive films allows you to explore the inner thoughts of two characters across a series of serendipitous and sometimes awkward encounters that eventually lead to Love at Fifth Site.

Love at Fifth Site allows the audience to use their phone to ‘shine a light’ onto the inner monologue of the film’s protagonists. Using the phone's accelerometer and the browser's native device motion library to respond to audience interaction and movement, the work forms part of an ongoing exploration of how technology can help artists push the boundaries of traditional storytelling.
