About Sean Clark

I am a digital artist, the Founder and Managing Director of web/mobile developer Cuttlefish, the Director of Leicester arts company Interact Digital Arts and a Visiting Research Fellow at the Institute of Creative Technologies at De Montfort University.

In my commercial work I am interested in social networking, mobile multimedia, collaborative computing and location-aware information systems. In my arts work I am inspired by systems theory, the nature of interactivity and creative explorations of flow and connectedness.

Over a period of almost 30 years I have had a varied career that has seen me work in the arts, academia and commerce, and I am comfortably able to move my focus between the three.

As a researcher I have published over 30 research papers and have spoken at numerous conferences and seminars. I have an Honours Degree in Computer Studies from Loughborough University, a Masters in Digital Arts from Camberwell College of Arts, University of the Arts London and am currently writing-up a practice-based PhD in Systems Theory and Digital Arts at De Montfort University.

Projects: Past and Present

My past project documentation is gradually being moved over to the Interact Archive – together with a growing collection of my other archival materials. The original project pages are still available in the Sean Clark Archive section of this site, but future improvements to the archive (such as an interactive timeline) will take place on the new site. Similarly, all of my current and future projects are now being documented on the Interact site under the Artworks, Commissions & Collaborations, Exhibitions, Events & Curation and Workshops, Education & Training sections.
