data sonification algorithm and musical composition
Algorithmic artwork collaboration with Michael Kotsimbos, sponsored by the CIty of Yarra, mixed & mastered by Pat Telfer, supported by the Melbourne Lung Health Research
Centre, and composed by the air we all breathe.
Made entirely out of 2020 air quality data from
Melbourne, Australia, the musical composition was generated by a custom data
sonification algorithm which can be thought of
as a synthetic orchestra, with air
pollutants as the instruments and our carbon footprint as the conductor.

Digital billboard visualisation of site-specific sonic patterns, displayed on the corner of Flinders Street and Elizabeth Street for the Fivex Art Prize, Melbourne, December 2020 - January 2021.
Peak Frequency is a hypnotic representation of our urban space, reflecting and distributing what is already there in pursuit of
encouraging critical awareness of the systematic and routine foundations of our public lives. The work is a spectrogram, time is represented
on the x-axis, sonic frequency on the y-axis, and decibel intensity is colour.
Instruments of Life
Two kinetic objects that interact with each other, solo exhibition at No Vacancy Gallery, Melbourne, 2019.
Instruments of Life is an investigation into our primal familiarity with technology. This installation is made up of two key components. Lamp
incorporates two distinctly different frequencies of light in motion:
one that attracts organic life, while the other repels it. Pickup is a custom made microphone synthesizer array that detects and translates electromagnetic waves (emitted by Lamp and any electrical device in its vicinity) to sound.
Black Box mixed media 75 x 55 x 55 cm
Feedback machine commisioned for ‘You Are Here’ group exhibition curated by Matthew Davis at Melbourne’s Living Museum of the West, 2019.
PA System that uses feedback as a means of addressing and responding to
the specificities of site. Affected by the proximity of listeners and
changes in atmospheric conditions, the sculpture amplifies the multiple
resonances of the site's architecture, social conditions and
Interactive audiovisual performance incorporating light, sound, and viewer proximity, collaboration with Mitchell Mackintosh at Grant Street Theatre, Melbourne, 2019.
Stemming from John Luther Adams’ ideas on ‘Sonic Geography’, Precipitations
is an immersive installation that uses light and sound to explore the
interconnectivity of our ‘internal’ psychological space and ‘external’
