2000s: communication, correspondence and influence


In the work of the first decade of this century, the generative works, video constructs, became interactive, using sound and image sensor systems. As these interactive works developed the concern for long term influences, rather than short term reactions, led to the Shaping Form series, which continues to evolve. The early concerns of Communication Games, were revived to combine with Shaping Forms into the distributed interactive systems, Cities Tango. New work also included colaboration with Mark Fell on a series of performances integrating sound and image.
