‘UI’ is a series of animated artworks based on the concept of user interface. The choice of flashing neon colours resembles a never-ending videogame level or market chart. The compositions feature numerous arrows and other forms directing eyes around the work.

The series is an exploration of how we see in digital environments. These artworks deliver a stream of continuous, pulsing dopamine hits, like staring at market interfaces or social media feeds. Despite all this visual stimulus, some glimpses of recognisable forms can emerge. The uncanny experience of catching a glimpse of something recognisable in a fast moving digital context is explored. 

The varied 2D source imagery for this series has been extruded into a third dimension, modified and reorganised. Some image objects are processed multiple times with different procedures, resulting in many disparate forms from the sources.

The resulting artworks are slot machines with an unknown payout, so much digital light and colour.
UI on SuperRare


Jump the platforms and get past the big boss. Structures must be navigated quickly to get to your destination. Read the charts. Choose the correct direction and category. Get a reading. Scan the landscape. The big show brings them all in for a game of skill and chance.  


A level requiring keen visual focus. Keep your eyes on the screen as passing image objects are categorised, compressed, filtered and enhanced. Maximise this window to unlock the new way of seeing.  


This power up is set to stun. For further settings refer to the manual. The fifth piece in my SuperRare series exploring abstract game UI and the act of seeing in digital environments.  


Bonus maze where you can expand or get squashed. Your character must survive the filtering process, as dimensions are compressed and extruded many times over. This pay-for image object demands repeat viewing: you’ll want to come back and see more.


Player 1. Level 2. This piece is made mostly from my older artworks, extruding them into an extra dimension, then rotating and processing them so they become new again.
