ABOUT IAN BISCOE
Ian is a producer, artist, entrepreneur, designer and engineer with degrees in architecture and landscape architecture. Prior to establishing his art and academic practices he founded a number of international companies in the fields of process control, aerospace, mobile communications and entertainment. He is currently studying for a PhD in cognitive environments.
Ian is interested in the examination and representation of natural and created space, especially that which is remote, intangible and unknown in the immediate. His explorations of the boundaries of physical, virtual and augmented realities are conducted using a range of media, in performance and installation, working with collaborators from the disciplines of science, theatre, dance and music, in traditional venues, on‐location, and in gallery spaces. He questions how these worlds are explored in narrative and by performers, how they are perceived by the audience/s and how they might involve the audience.
In his non‐digital and new media practices Ian is interested in layering, obfuscation and partial destruction during the development of work. Digital work combines advanced real time media manipulation, mapping, live streaming, and interaction.
