His work with large-scale video mapped projection evolved from a stint of guerrilla raids such as the infamous image of Gail Porter onto the Houses of Parliament. This was followed with a commission for the Turin Biennale to project large-scale images onto landmark buildings in the city. The projections derived from medical equipment at the Royal College of Surgeons in London, chosen to display human frailty on a maximum scale. This was followed with a VJ performance for the ICA ,commissioned for the Playtime film festival.He has also worked with The Light Surgeons, the established multimedia collective.Projects have included audio production for 'LDN24' at The Museum of London and music production and performance for 'True Fictions', a live audio/visual performance.(New York/London IMAX/Hong Kong/Belfast/Madrid//Milan/Big Chill Festival)
