Using a wide range of media and techniques to explore my fascination for creativity, I work in many fields including painting, sculpture, photography, graphic design, product design, visualization, UX and user interface design.

Before moving to Bali, I was Director of Research and Development at Jawbone. I previously ran a lecture series in London at Tate Modern on computer graphics under my company Supernatural and continue now to work on speech writing and presentation development such as Green School co-founder, John Hardy's TED lectures. I use this site as a portfolio of recent projects and concepts and also home to my blog where I discuss ideas, news and areas of this great wide world that pique my diverse interests ...and yes, my real name is zissou.  

Sustainability

Since moving to Bali in 2010 I have become far more deeply involved in sustainable thinking and design. I have built a bamboo home in the jungle, grow a wide range of fruit and vegetables and make a concerted effort to become more aware and considerate of nature and it's vital role in allowing us to live on this planet. To this end, should you have a creative project you feel could advance this type of neo-realism and are looking for creative assistance, you can contact me via the link above.

Sissel Tolaas

Sissel is a ‘scent artist’ – having personally harvested nearly 7,000 scent specimens, she is developing a lexicon of new terms to describe them – a smells language.  There’s a nice article on her here.

I love sketch

Tipped off to this research project by the nice guys over at Adobe, PhD student Seok-Hyung Bae and others have developed an intuitive 3d sketching platform that looks from the videos here to be nothing short of revloutionary. I cannot wait to try this out.

Martino Gamper – 100 chairs

Having been brought up in the age where the musical remix has been so prominent, this is the equivalent of hip-hop for furniture – a raw, unashamed, fresh remix of classics. Read on…

KAWS

To call  KAWS a street artist or graffiti artist would be omitting something, he’s not just a graphic artist either – more like a creative entrepeneur and damn is he good at it.

Rhonda Forever

Since the early days of my experiements with computer graphics, I have been following the work of  James Paterson and Amit Pitaru – then as Insert Silence they created a landmark animated piece for Bjork and ever since, have always wondered how it was done.  This week I discovered they had been using  propietary software developed by Pitaru called  Rhonda. Originally conceived around 2003, the pair have for the first time offered it for public use.

Congratulations guys, this tool is a huge step in 3d sketching. Shallow learning curve and fantasic fun to play with. Sign up for the free download  here
