Mineral Machine Music 1080P (9 min)  (2014)
Photographer, Sound Design & Editor
Mineral Machine Music has become a successful global touring artwork since its debut in Townsville in January 2014. Most significantly, it was shortlisted for the prestigious Lumen Digital Arts Prize in Cardiff in June 2014. The Lumen is recognised by the UK’s Guardian newspaper as the “The world’s pre-eminent digital art prize”. As a result of this shortlisting Mineral Machine Music was a part of the Lumen touring program that visited Cardiff, Amsterdam, Athens, the New York Institute of Technology on Broadway and will have a season at London’s famous Crypt Gallery beneath St Pancras’ church in May 2015. In December, the film was also shortlisted for the MADATAC06 video art award in Spain screening at the historic Palacio de Cibeles Auditorium in Madrid. Most recently Mineral Machine Music was selected from over 2500 works to feature in the 16th Media Art Biennale in Wroclaw, Poland in May.

COMMERCIAL EXPERIENCE 
(1996 – 2005)

Griffith University, School of Arts Website  (2005)

An extensive site built to reflect the clash of cultures – the transient, neon, tourista, beach enclave and the urban underbelly of a young vibrant network of creatives.  The brief was simply to take this relationship to the extreme, to resist the clean sparse designs of similar sites by the tertiary arts sector and capitalise on the moody shades of the glitter strip.

Griffith University, Research Website  (2005)

School of Arts Research site required an altogether different feel – much more conservative in its visual style and more conventional with regards to navigation.  Commissioned as an information portal, mainly for external academics, funding bodies and/or government departments.
