    ‘Big Data’ is a communally produced layer of digital documentation that when analyzed and categorized often elicits a sense of ‘overwhelmingness’. This paper focuses on the experience of accessing this data both as producer and analyst. The research follows an interdisciplanry groups projects to produce wearable technologies and a collaborative online platform.

    Digital Environments: Ethnographic Perspectives Across Global Online and Offline Spaces. 2017.

    This research paper explores ways in which the internet has changed the way spirituality and religion are approached. Specifically it looks at the digital religion of The Church of Google - Googlism. This online community, not officially associated with Google, believe “Google is the closest thing to a god that can be scientifically proven.” This paper has been published in the book


    Research Hive Polology, article. 2016.

    This short article gives insight into my research of the community of The Church of Google.


    This is the full memoir of my grandfather Neil Glasserm MVO: Never Wear a Watch: Entrepreneur Extraordinary. Written from a third person perspective, my own, the story of Neil Glasser, the man who pioneered innovation retailing in the land Down Under, is told in the form of a collection of hilarious and sometimes poignant short stories. From running away to sea as a boy to turning down the Queen's Tea, his life is a page turner.

  • data visualizations:

    As an outcome of my research into personal health data donation is this work which conveys information in the periphery of human attention. Programmed using MaxMSP software and a Kinect, the viewer’s outline is identified, processed, projected and filled with data donated by participants in the study. The viewer is therefore faced with their own shadow, but they are only capable of identifying it thanks to digital data donors. The interactive visual is responsive, symbolising how data constantly traces us - and potentially allows us access to a more complex and layered definition of humanity.

    This is information visualisation work was collaboratively created at La Cura Summer School - and explored the question of what is means to "inhabit the planet". We interpreted this topic through an exploration of the semantic and conceptual polarities underlying the notion of 'inhabiting'. We decided to visualise this using social media content (from the public domain), specifically images from Instagram and status updates from Twitter.


    Using this information visualisation one can filter, compose and mix the social media content gathered according to several different terms related to 'inhabiting', as well as according to the emotional analysis of the status updates themselves.


    This is the visual outcome of my qualitiative research that explored experiences of big data. The purpose of the work is to convey the deconstructive and reconstructive processes in data analysis & to highlight the subjective nature of data interpretation. Text excerpts that can be seen are sourced from semi-structured interviews of people working with big data and data visualizations at La Cura, Italy 2016.


    The work is interactive and is coded with Open Processing. Credit and thanks goes to Generative Gestaltung: Hartmut Bohnacker, Benedikt Gross, Julia Laub, Claudius Lazzeron

    Volunteer, 2010

    40K helped me fall in love with doing meaningful work. I had the opportunity to be one of the first volunteers from Australia to work with the organisation in their newly built home, The Banyan, on the outskirts of Bangalore in India.

More importantly, it was they who taught me the value that play and creativity has on one's overall well being and health.
