Agency and Autonomy: Intersections of Artificial Intelligence and Creative PracticeJanuary 13, 2021
In October, under lockdown, the International Symposium on Electronic Art 2020 was held virtually. I participated on a panel considering issues of AI and creative practice, discussing my experience in creating AI systems for commercial music production. The video of the whole panel discussion is definitely worth watching, with me as last speaker at 37:44…

Military CorporatismOctober 25, 2004
An engaging animation with commentary on the rising U.S. war machine. The message is a little simplistic for my tastes but makes for some great art.
Military Censorship of FilmmakingSeptember 28, 2004
The mealy-mouthed self-censorship of Hollywood is legendary, particularly the Hayes code preventing anything approaching realistic depictions of a variety of adult behaviour.

Adbusters anti-sweatshop shoe & The TakeSeptember 28, 2004
