Simon is a digital artist who’s work often incorporates technology: smartphone Apps, Raspberry Pi’s etc. His background of 20 years experience in programming for mobile devices allows him to create all kinds of bespoke technical devices to incorporate into his work. Simon’s most recent work is Sonolope – an app that runs on a smartphone or smartwatch that allows the participants to create three dimensional immersive soundscapes as they move around.
Simon is also one half of Diploopia (the other half is East Street Arts member Jane Wood). As Diploopia Simon and Jane focus is on producing highly interactive multimedia installations that fully engage with audiences. Their best known work to date was the BodyRemixer installation we have shown at Leeds Light Night, the National Media Museum and Nottingham Light Night.
