Dave Lynch is an artist, director and inventor working Internationally at the intersection of moving image, interactive installation, performance and projection. His practice combines elements of art, science, military, maker and media cultures as part of it’s tactics, technologies and production.
His work usually manifests through spectacle via lens based media; interactive audio visual performance, installation, intervention and prototypes. He also specialises in mobile projection from moving vehicles -cars, rickshaws and aircraft. Collaboration is core to his artistic and commercial practice, working with artists, academics, physicists, neuroscientists, creative technologists, cultural experts, musicians and more.
Lynch has pioneered the projection of moving images onto clouds using redesigned Muybridge technology from the 1800s, Projection mapping installations controlled by brainwaves using EEG and FriiSpray – a virtual graffiti system.
Lynch has performed over 360 live shows, over 20 large scale installations including the World’s once largest room, Europe’s largest indoor climbing wall, a 20 storey cylindrical building, a 90m high quarry and seamless 360o 4D projections onto cars and complex 4m crystal clusters.
His works been featured on BBC 2, The World Service, Wired.co.uk, The New York Times, VICE and Project Nimbus was described as a world first as reported in New Scientist, The Smithsonian Museum, RT.com, Engadget and many more.

Christophe de Bézenac
Dr Christophe de Bézenac is a musician and neuroscience researcher based in the UK. After studying at the Conservatoire de Strasbourg, he completed a PhD which examined perceptual ambiguity in music, taking an ecological approach (University of Leeds, 2007), he became actively involved in the European experimental jazz/music scene. He regularly performs at international festivals/venues and lectures in improvised music at HE institutions.
Christophe’s research interests have also led him to work in the field of cognitive neuroscience, more specifically, examining the neural correlates of ambiguity between self and other in perception and action. He is currently completing a 2nd doctorate by publication in clinical neuroimaging (fMRI/EEG/TMS) at the University of Liverpool. The aim of this work is to shed light on agency mechanisms at work in both health and psychosis, where self/other boundaries can become blurred.
Richard is a twice BAFTA nominated creative technologist. He has worked on games, applications and digital interactive installations for a variety of clients including The National Media Museum, BBC, Channel 4 and other organisations.
Together with Gamelab and Microsoft he was awarded ‘Partner of the Year’ at the 2013 Guide Dogs Association Awards for a work on a prototype binaural audio game, driven by motion detection. This game was also shortlisted in the TIGA Games Awards 2014 for ‘Best Game Design’.
Other projects include The Boris Games; using the Microsoft Kinect to teach use of sign language, which is a finalist in NHK’s Japan Prize 2015 (Creative Frontier category) and has previously won a TIGA games industry award (Best Educational Initiative). He has also recently created a virtual reality cycling prototype to promote safety awareness.
Paul Miller is a multi-disciplinary artist and designer who has worked on an eclectic range of commercial and arts-based projects for over 15 years including design for theatre companies, large scale art installations, exhibitions, music videos and live visuals.
“Sharkey is at the cutting-edge of contemporary improv-fusion guitar technique, colliding headlong free-jazz phrasing with roaring thrash metal riffs and ghostly electronics”
