Comm. Sys. Manual Vol. 1 is an installation I developed with Samuel Hardman based on a cycle of poems written that metaphorically mimic the processes of electrical communications systems. 


Comm. Sys. Manual Vol. 1 uses custom hardware and software I developed alongside artwork created by Sam to provide people with unique and random experiences that challenge their constructions of subjectivity and the myth of a single artist/single audience artistic event.

Poet With No Face

Poetry / Engineering / Art


I'm an electrical engineer with a passion for poetry who is constantly looking for ways to entangle the two and create artistic spaces that challenge the ways we normally interact with the world. If you have any related ideas or want to get in contact with me, send me a message below!
