Since 1996, I have been exploring new technologies as an artist, researcher, curator and writer under the banner of bytetime.
In my creative work I explore ideas of place, history, mapping, consumption and landscape, focusing on notions of identity, culture and belonging.
Early work focused specifically on tourism, souvenirs and notions of personal identity. More recent projects include an ongoing collaboration with cartographer Martin Drury titled Geokult.com.
As an educator, I developed a blog for media cultures – mediakult.wordpress.com blog which is listed on the National Library of Australia’s (NLA) catalogue as an online resource. My website www.byte-time.net is also listed on the NLA’s Pandora catalogue.
Another project titled Remote Connections remotexmedia.wordpress.com focuses social media collaboration with mobile and hand held devices in remote Aboriginal communities. This project is part of my role as an adjunct postdoctoral researcher at the Australian National University, School of Music.
