The work is informed equally by the concept of furniture music and audio psychology.
For the last 10+ years, I have been working as a creative mentor with the experimental educational research charity 'Protégé', who work with young people who have disengaged from, or have restricted access to, mainstream education.
Together with my wife and artist Samantha Y. Huang, we co-run the arts initiative 'IMA Studio' which works to interrogate the status quo in Fine Art in the hope of generating new and innovative ways for artists to have better, longer, more sustainable careers.
