interactive technologies with visual media "exploring new ways to communicate and connect to an
Lately, I've been thinking...
I'm interested in interactivity and the future of mobility.
As per my usual mode I'm working on a variety of projects at the
same time - some listed below. Within my personal work I'm currently
most keen on looking at new ways of integrating interactive technologies
with the things that we carry or wear in urban spaces. Ive
been favoring capturing the experience of these with short segmented
films and constructed narratives in which a story, or idea can change
over time by engaging an audience not only to view, but to correspond
and participate in the work.
Im hoping the Internet will be the perfect distribution
channel for these projects as
it enables multipoint communication increasing the number of places
in which the work can be seen. The expected result is changing the
way that Ive traditionally worked and I hope offering inspiration
to others interested in the new forms and practices offered to us
by new and existing technologies.
Some of my current and most recent projects include:
a project which will consist of two parts: how will Location Based
Services (LBS) applications affect our mobile future, and what form
should these take to be effective in moving people and/or goods
within urban environments.
My aim is to improve the design of urban vehicles and systems by
creating plausible and realistic scenarios of future LBS services
and through prototypes and analysis explore the experiences, contradictions
and possibilities of where it can be integrated into everyday life.
LBS technology can and I expect will affect almost everyone in some

Capture "Attire Your Body with Wearable Clothing and
Articles that Capture Your Mood, Emotion or Body Performance"
As a winner of the New Voices Competition
2004: on the move a series of "attentive wearables and objects"
were presented and profiled in an exhibition at
the Ontario Science Centre, May 8-21, 2004, Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
Several conceptual prototypes were on display for the public to view
including the Moon Coat - a coat consisting of a radio device that
initiates the jacket to allow your mood to be recognized and then
Details: These prototypes for the
most part look at how to develop a contextual relationship with the
computer through what I call “attentive wearables" - wearable computers
that measure body data to approximate mood and/or one’s specifically
indicated emotions to better understand the user, location and context
All these projects leverage off of my current and
past experience as an User Experience Architect and the previous prototypes I developed
as part of my masters program in Interaction Design at the Royal College of Art, London, UK where the theme of my work was Emotional Computing.

along with CV for my past experience details.
