ABOUT

Jack is a multidisciplinary creative currently working with immersive technology and user experience design.


Digital Storytelling


I work with experimental and immersive storytelling technologies including but not limited to: AI, VR, XR, nonlinear film, physical computing, projection mapping, algorithmic art, and spatial audio.

My work empowers audiences with the agency to affect an outcome. Visibility is also a recurring theme, through questions of who is seen and heard, but more importantly, who is not... I also like to create things that make people smile.

User Experience Design

As a designer working independently, collaboratively or leading a team, I have helped large, complex organisations such as the BBC and American Express, solve large, complex design and UX problems by seeking out innovative new perspectives and challenging convention wherever possible.


Research and Writing

 
Critical analysis and research are integral to my work. I have recently drawn inspiration from Jussi Parikka’s archeological approach to critiquing media cultures and technologies, and Donna Haraway’s situated design methodology for the development of contemporary technologies such as artificial intelligence.
