David Strang is an artist and researcher working with sound and interactive elements. His work explores the creative potential within the movement of noise in and around systems of sound and light by building / hacking bespoke devices and tools for performance, workshop, installation and intervention. Through processes of playful interaction and making, his practice investigates the links between objects, material, consciousness and the body. David runs various experimental workshops, often in collaboration, exploring sonic arts, hacking, sensors, making and objects / materials in a multi strand collaborative framework. These workshops are aimed at the sharing of knowledge (Doing It With Others) throughout the group to create an artwork/performance. Recent work includes site-specific installation, performance, field-recording, re-appropriating media objects, hacking and noise. David works across multiple disciplines, such as architecture, design and marine biology.
He has collaborated and exhibited with artists and scientists as well as exhibiting solo work in the UK, Europe, Iceland, Russia, Canada, Hong Kong and USA.
David currently lives and works in the UK and is a Lecturer in Digital Media Design at Plymouth University and is the co-founder of the interactive arts consortium ~hotwire~ and the bio-arts collective RADIX.
