Pokémon Go and Pervasive Games

When I try explaining to people my interest in pervasive games, I’ve found that my most common starting point has become “You know, like Pokémon Go, but…” It’s fascinating how, since only last summer, Pokémon Go has effectively come to define a whole ...

Arctic Blog: Thursday 6th October – scrapings, swayings and bangings

--> Thursday 6/10/2016 -2°C,  2m/sec, Sunrise 09:13 – Sunset 18:15   – 1°C It’s dark and I’ve been awake for sometime. I have no idea what time it is but so far it’s been a night of little sleep, kept awake by things sliding back and forth, scrapings and swayings and bangings. The door that I propped open with the bin to allow some air to permeate the stuffy cabin (and to stop me feeling totally claustrophobic) has been crashing to and fro into ...

Last night I was sure we were moving since the boat was swaying so much. All that thu...

Arctic Blog – Oct 2nd/3rd/4th: Embarkation and my first sight of a glacier

It has taken me a while to get my diary notes written up and to sort out the hundreds of photographs I have taken while traveling. Most of my drawings and water-colours are now up on the wall in my studio (well those not in sketch books) and I'm struggling with how to make images from it all. A wall of Arctic sketchesIt's so different to painting seas. Since returning home I've been a bit busy ...had a solo show at Cadogan Contemporary in London, driven up Shetland to give a paper and exhibit a few of ...
