crash-stop [IE] – The Treachery of Images
The paradigm of the desktop graphical user interface reflects the corporate origins and mindset of most of the software we use. Both Windows and macOS are designed for cubicle dwellers, office drones and ad jockeys. How can we break out of those inbuilt constraints to move away from mimicking ‘real world counterparts’ using software in a performative and meaningful way to make art from and in this space rather than using its tools to create ‘work’ that is then seen as separate from the environment in which it was created.

Born in the UK, living and working in Ireland. His work is based on misusing and leveraging flaws in software and hardware to reinterpret and remake found sources, including VHS, public domain silent movies, government information films, and ad breaks from satellite television, what is generally referred to as ‘Glitch Art’ or ‘Net Art’. His focus at the moment is on using the desktop workspace paradigm as an environment to work within and comment upon.
