BREAD create unexpected encounters which gently ask you to slow down, stop for a moment and take in your surroundings in the hope that you'll notice something new. I founded BREAD to explore the space where people, place, art and technology collide. I firmly believe that the most successful works are developed through a process of co-development with places and communities. Projects range from local engagement to large scale interventions to permanently installed work to creative design and build. Outcomes are tangible, often include light and digital elements and are realised through carefully applied processes - coding, electronics, manufacture, computer-controlled machining. Working across this range of projects allows me to realise creative ideas with the rigour needed to create reliable works. Clients include local authorities, arts organisations, national museums, and international companies such as Blackburn with Darwen Borough Council, Imperial War Museum North, Manchester Children’s Hospital, Siemens, Kirklees Borough Council & The National Trust.
