To involve and engage a community in the ancient ritual of theatre, to honour the history of place, and to provide an opening in the media to present the spirit of the community.
I have extensive experience in creating and producing advanced media experiences for theatrical and architectural environments. I have designed and directed international live shows and events for 30 years, including rock bands U2, R.E.M., David Bowie, Bryan Adams, David Byrne, Savage Garden, James Brown, television shows including the Academy Awards, Grammy Awards, MTV Awards and Super Bowl Halftime Shows. Recently, I have installed large-scale projections on the Sydney Opera House, a small-scale ‘light forest’ installation in Federation Square, Melbourne, and created visual content for Melbournes Aami Park Stadium new LED roof. I am currently a Design Mentor at the Sydney Opera House, and a Guest Lecturer in Urban Digital Media at the University Technology Sydney.
My work is about connections. I design installations as luminous interactive sculptures, both permanent and temporary, practical and whimsical. I seek to animate the environment with light and moving images. I believe that dynamic media installations can contribute significantly to the relationship between local and global culture, between indigenous and emerging cultures, between the artistic community and the public-at-large.
