3d graphics motion capture science fiction human utility posthuman corporate fiction

I'm a 3d animator who lives and works in Glasgow, Scotland. Studied Drawing, Painting and Electronic imaging at Dundee College of Art and Design.

I make 3d visuals that explore the relationship between technology and society, and how it moulds human behaviour. I use motion capture extensively, as the human figure is almost always present in my compositions. My work could be described as 'science fictional', though set in the 'Extreme Present'.

Work has been screened internationally at media art and film festivals since 1989, beginning with 'World Peace through Free Trade' through to 'J.I.' (jellyfish Intelligence) in 2021, made in collaboration with Greek artist Lina Theodorou.
