My practice involves physical, tactile interactions that produce generative outcomes. I am interested in the tension between the analogue and the digital. The point where the two meet.

"Generative" is where you lose control of a machine which does exactly what you tell it." Philip Galanter

Luna is an interactive stress ball that produces generative motion visuals. It is designed for a childs treatment room at Central Manchester University Hospital's Sexual Assault Referral Centre (SARC). The work was comissioned by Lime Art.

The aim of the product is to engage the child in a calming and relaxing way whilst undergoing a medical examination.
