The Mummy
Mummy Workshop eveloped with MadLab for the Edinburgh International Science Festival. Participants unwrap a mummy and investigate the amulets, heiroglyphs, insects and pollen hidden within the binding. They then look at x-rays to establish the gender and cause of death, and mix natron salts to 'mummify' pieces of fruit.

The basic mummy was built by XZ Resources by sculpting leather over a plastic medical skeleton.
   
   

Mission Control
Rocket workshops for schools and young people. Participants build and launch 1m high paper and card model rockets from everday materials. Rockets are then launched outside using special pyrotechnics and land via parachute. Special workshops included a video camera and transmitter.
   
   
Space-Kraft
A 'performance' of Nimble the blimp at the DCA in Dundee, transmitting live video signals from the craft through the gallery, to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Gagarin's first human orbit of the Earth.
   
   
Flat Earth
I worked for artists Thompson and Craighead creating 2-D and 3-D animation for their piece 'Flat Earth', a work for television formed from blog texts, sounds and satellite imagery garnered from the internet.
