David is an award-winning artist making immersive multimedia experiences.

He works with hi and low technologies such video, light, sound and spatial design to create highly emotive and reflective environments. In 2014 he was awarded a competitive Sky Academy Arts Scholarship to develop ‘THE WEATHER MACHINE’. In 2013 he won the World Stage Design award for Best Installation for ‘and it all comes down to this…’ (2012). David writes and talks on immersive experience and spatial design.
