Research Overview

My research is a combination of arts practice, mobilities research and speculative software design. I work within the field of mobilties research, with a particular interest in the collaborative use of GPS, both in creative practice, the design of the app 'Comob Net', and in rescue situations. As creative director of CeMoRe and mobilities.lab I am currently developing a workshop on mobilities and art for spring 2015, and co-editing a special issue of Mobilities Journal.
