Friday the 23rd was Drones Day at the Dutch Electronic Arts Festival, and I missed almost all of it. Wandered in just in time to catch the tail end of Daan Krijnen demonstrating his AR Drone Face Tracking, in which a Parrot Drone tracks your […]

Back at the start of April I was in Belgrade for Resonate 2014, lodging with the good people of The Artificial. Having had my fill of Kinect hacks, projection maps & assorted visualisations, here are three things that have stuck with me now, a month down the […]

Updates on travels to Burgundy, Manchester & Belgrade in the past weeks at a later point, popping this one off the stack first… “The World in 50 Years & How Do We Get There” was the promising title of the recent afternoon-long mini conference put […]

Time passed! Stuff happened! I overdid the bouldering a little, now nursing a dodgy elbow & shoulder! The review of LIQUIFIED SKY I wrote for Arc came out this week after a brisk evisceration & reconstruction at the hands of its benevolent overlord editor. Thanks Simon, I […]

Fuck week notes, have a rant instead. That’s by far more entertaining. No referencing or linking. Or proof-reading, or research or facts or any of that shit. Saw an article today on a major Dutch news site saying the German military wants to become more […]

Hello 2014

Written by . Filed under Bla. No comments.

I only moved house once last year! The plan for 2013 was climbing & making smoothies. Smoothies didn’t last very long but I did stay in the habit of eating breakfast which apparently is a good thing. Climbing has gone fairly well, after a year […]

Two projects kicked off this week, a full visual identity & site, and some design consulting & a site build. Research work has started on the identity. I’ll talk about both of these when they launch some time in February. On Structure & Narrative: A few […]

DARTFROG WIP

So lately when people ask me what I’m doing, I’m often not sure what to tell them. Stuff. Things & stuff. This obviously isn’t sufficiently descriptive, so I need to get better at articulating it, and maybe actually also have some sense of an idea […]
