Dominic is an artist and curator who has been active in the arts for over twenty five years. His practice reflects his interest in the collaborative nature of digital platforms, digital material culture, new technologies, participation in culture and experimental approaches to audience engagement via digital means and liveness.
His curatorial practice focuses upon the use of new technologies and audience engagement through participatory methods, working with artists to produce exhibitions in a mix of circumstances, ranging from traditional galleries, large scale ad hoc spaces and the development of multiple innovative online platforms. In recent years this has included the Polytechnic artists group followed by the development of the Pixel Palace at the Tyneside Cinema which ran for a number of years, through to the curation of the Digital War Memorial for the Society of Chief Librarians. He currently works as associate digital curator with a number of organisations and Galleries including ‘D6 Culture In Transit’ and Queens Hall Arts, developing innovative digital arts programmes.
