Dave Lynch is an artist, director & inventor working internationally with interactive installation, moving image and projection. He has produced over 360 live visual shows including installations in the once largest room in the world, a 20 storey cylindrical building, a 90m high quarry and 360 vehicle projections.
His work has featured on wired.co.uk, and in the New York Times. His upcoming Project Nimbus is the exploration of digital and analogue techniques to project moving images onto clouds from aircraft working in collaboration with Chemical Physicists, Technologists, Makers and cultural specialists. and debuted in the New Scientist in 2013.
At FON2013 he presented the laser zoopraxniscope Mk4, a remake of Edweard Muybridge’s early projection device from the 1800s, developed after almost a year of research into projecting moving images onto clouds using analogue techniques. Dave was heard in conversation with his two main collaborators; Chemical Physicist, Dr Mike Nix of Leeds University, about how the art and science of play forged the new experimental techniques employed in the cloud projector and Dr Vlad Strukov, cultural specialist researching the human relationship to data and how advancements in technology can drive artistic endeavour.
Lynch seeks to further the work of the original pioneers in the cinematic and communication fields by augmenting their discoveries with the ubiquitous technologies we have around us. Often inspired by military advancements, he is interested the human interdependent relationship to the current technological paradigm shift. He is currently designing a scifi show for the Edinburgh International Festival, a life size robot, pedal powered social systems and a laser to send an AV signal into space and can often be found routing around in skips, charity shops and car boot sales for bits to make lovely things out of.
