A digital artist based in Birmingham, UK, James Dooley’s (formuls) audiovisual interaction design examines approaches to combining audio, visual and environmental elements to create emergent forms. The individual components of his work play with the boundary between autonomy and synchrony, revealing their hidden connections and creating a meta-environment.
His works have been exhibited internationally at festivals including: SPECTRA (MY), SonADA (UK), Electric Nights (GR), Slingshot (US). Recent works include formuls an algorithmically controlled audiovisual performance; #medianatures an interactive work examining our increasing reliance upon technology and its future ecological impact; esthesis an AHRC commissioned audiovisual performance exploring hand-gesture controlled sound sculpting. James is currently Artist in Residence at Integra Lab, a research lab focused on music interaction design.
