Dan is a multidisciplinary digital artist from Manchester, who works with light and sound and algorithms for screen, print and beyond. Originally a software engineer and technologist for the likes of BBC Children's and BBC Research & Development (winning a BAFTA on the way through), Dan is now focused on using his magic computer powers to answer his own questions, rather than somebody elses. Much of Dan's current practice is centered around machine/algorithmic collaborative creativity, and when he's not noodling with robots and algorithms he can be found working alongside physical performers, musicians, painters and anyone else who enjoys clattering worlds together.
Dan is also a prominent member of the Algorave livecoded electronic music movement, and is an accomplished live visual artist, lighting up stages all over the UK and Europe including a live set at the Blue Dot festival in the shadow of the Lovell radio telescope. Dan is currently operating as one of the selected artists on FutureEverything's cutting-edge FAULT LINES program for the next two years, and has made loud noise on stage for the likes of FITC, Resonate, Reasons To Be Creative and more.
