 who I AM

Photo by @_adamajalloh

I am Mel.

I create inter-disciplinary artworks, sometimes performances, sometimes games, sometimes both. 

 

My work uses gaming and performance structures to build responsive, meaningful and dynamic interactive experiences.

 

I am a digital storyteller. I am particularly interested in using transmedia approaches to create projects that bleed between the digital and the physical world, and sometimes exist within the liminal space between them.

 

I am a creative mathematician. I have a degree in Mathematics, and a lot of my work is informed by mathematical ideas and processes. Specifically, I am interested in the ways systems of all types - social, economic, political, environmental relate to emotions and behaviours, and to ideas less rigorously defined - fear, doubt, hope.
