    Over the weekend a buddy of mine was telling me how Amazon are going to be delivering packages via pilotless quad copters from early next year. The first time I heard about Amazon’s plans for 30 minute deliveries by quad copter was around April last year whereupon I immediately dismissed Amazon Prime Air as an April fool’s joke. But it seems the joke is refusing to die.

    Last train is a project by Ron Arad that I have been involved in over the last couple of years. The piece was commissioned by the diamond company Steinmetz, and inspired by a story from Arad’s youth where, as he attempted to catch the last train out of Naples, he saw a young man scratching an elaborate image onto a train window with a diamond ring. Arad missed his train but felt that he had been rewarded by seeing this beautiful work. This piece is inspired by that memory. It is an interactive drawing tool that allows participants to create glass etchings using an iPad. The lines…

    Bipolar is an experiment in using the human form as a medium for sound visualisation. It is an audiovisual virtual mirror that warps the participant’s body as they wander through the space. A soundscape designed by Liam Paton is generated from the presence and motion of the participants. The data from this (in addition to sounds from the user and environment) is used to transform the body into a distorted portrait that fluctuates between states of chaos and order. This piece has evolved from an experiment I made 18 months ago when exploring the possibilities for using the body as a canvas…
