one remix player's scenic route through remixworx

Conceived as a poetic interactive infographic with lots of multimedia animated content, this 'scenic route' presents a sample trail of 33 out of the 100 remixes I've created since joining remixworx, a collaborative online creative project, in Jan 2007. This particular crissxross remix trail formed the central focus of my presentation for the ELMCIP conference on Remediating the Social in Nov 2012.

Out of Touch

Out of Touch

In our world of perpetual connectivity, touching interfaces that keep us out of reach, we form attachments whilst remaining detached, by turns kindling and dampening emotions. A digital poem created in Flash.

Out of Touch was commissioned by the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art for the Third Hand Plays series published at SFMOMA's Open Space in August 2011.

I/O Out Of Touch for live performance is an ongoing development, exploring the paradoxical and often poignant nature of human relationships amid networked life. Discover more...

Underbelly

Underbelly

A playable media fiction about a woman sculptor, carving on the site of a former colliery in the north of England. As she carves, she is disturbed by a medley of voices, some from the site's dark industrial past, and the player/reader is plunged into an underworld of repressed fears and desires. Created in Flash, with sound, 2010.

A spitfire from Tailspin
