About Sean Clark

Dr Sean Clark is a Lumen Prize-winning artist and curator, the Director of Leicester arts company Interact Digital Arts, the Founder of web/mobile developer Cuttlefish Multimedia, a Visiting Researcher at the Institute of Creative Technologies at De Montfort University in the UK and an International Professor at Guangdong University of Technology in China.

He is interested in mobile multimedia, collaborative computing and the Internet of Things. In his artwork, he is inspired by systems theory, the nature of interactivity and creative explorations of flow and connectedness.

Over a period of almost 30 years, he has had a varied career that has seen him work in the arts, academia and commerce, and he is comfortably able to move his focus between the three.

As a researcher, he has published over 30 research papers and has spoken at numerous conferences and seminars. He has 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 a practice-based PhD in Computational Art from De Montfort University.

He is a Fellow of the British Computer Society and active member of the Computer Arts Society. In 2015 he was shortlisted for a Talk Talk Digital Heroes Award for his education work. In 2016 he was the co-winner of the inaugural ArtCHI award in San Jose, CA and the Lumen Prize for 3D/Sculpture in London, UK. In 2019 he was selected to participate in the Mozilla Open Leaders programme.

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.
