Space Ice Cream in Forever Now

My short video Space Ice Cream has been selected and beamed into space as part of APHIDS' Forever Now project, a 21st-century response to the Voyager gold records. Thrilling!
Check it out here, along with lots of other incredible audio and video works by artists from around the world:

Goodbye, CSIRAC Excerpt

To complement my article about Goodbye, CSIRAC (2012) in the latest issue of IMTAL Europe's Insights magazine, here's an excerpt from the original audio tour.

This section takes place when the audience reach the Mind and Body gallery. We hear the cheerful narrator describe some of CSIRAC's foibles; then, at around 1.30, the Ghost of Computers Past interrupts. As the audience looks down from the Mind and Body balcony, the Ghost appears amongst the darkness and dinosaur skeletons in the Science and Life gallery below (as photographed by Sonia Mangiapane).

The voice of the narrator is performed by the wonderful Ellen Steele; the Ghost and the music were performed by myself; audio production by the fantastic Rob Stewart.
