Sean Campbell

Artist Intro

As an artist I work with the elements of colour, texture, line and form. I sculpt, digitize, animate and play. Presenting work left open to interpretation and interaction. Inspired through years of travel and an empirical interest in anthropology I use the creative process inherent within art to navigate what I believe to be an increasingly complex world. I encourage you to spend time with the work, to become a co-creator and to continue the journey I have begun.

The DAS residency project will be used to improve skills in programming and computer vision. Using Processing as a first language and introductory path to p5.js and OpenFrameworks I will create a series of interactive digital sketches. The technical skills gained will assist me on my journey to build a new body of interactive artwork with volumetric video capture in a VR/AR environment.
