I'm an #artist & #academic based in #Bristol UK. For 15 years I've been making critical interventions in technology under umbrellas of #SoundArt or #MediaArt. Now mostly working with cameras and video, still sometimes hacking hardware & also writing.
Currently interested in relationships between #criticalminerals and media, geophysics and digitisation, the production of images and their collateral landscapes.

Note: we've paused new signups for a few days while we deal with the #twittermigration influx - please do request an invite, but be aware that for now functions more like a 'waiting list' than a knock on the door, until our numbers stabilise again :-)
