Nick Tandavanitj: The Blast Theory
Nick Tandavanitj is as a core member of the media art group Blast Theory; collaborating in the development and realisation of the group’s interactive projects, performances and installations over the last 20 years. In this time, Nick has focused on creative approaches to computing; contributing to the group’s unique mix of skills in structuring interactivity and narrative. This has led to particular skills in technical design & programming, visual & interaction design for mobile and web based artwork and 3D design and animation.
Nick studied Art & Social Context at Dartington College of Arts from 1990-1993. In 2003, Nick became an Arts and Humanities Research Council Research Fellow at the University of Nottingham undertaking a nine month programme of research into artistic, social and gaming applications which use mobile technology.
Nick also teaches as part of Blast Theory’s programme of masterclasses and workshops. This work incorporates introductions to a variety of tools for prototyping and to concepts & techniques for generating interactivity.
