Ben Neal Psicon Lab 3D Profile

Arts-focused, Creative Technologist.
Digital artist, programmer, games/gadget builder, educator.
Working freelance as Psicon Lab

As a Creative Technologist I have a wide range of creative and technical skills and specialise in bringing them together to build unique and engaging products. As a Digital Producer I plan, manage and deliver complex and diverse projects, and provide knowledge and expertise.

I do a lot of creative coding and am an experienced programmer using mainly C#, PHP, Javascript, Python, CSS, HTML, Wordpress and Processing. I often work with 3D graphics, audio, video, mobile devices, create MIDI controllers, and sound-reactive animations - as well as building games, software and Virtual Reality using Unity.

Recently I've been working a lot with rapid prototyping using electrical sensors and microcontrollers (Arduino, Raspberry Pi etc.) to build gadgets with sensors, controls and LED lights.

I am the Digital Producer at BOM (Birmingham Open Media) - a center for Art, Science and Technology - where I support staff, artists, exhibitions and events. I'm also a BOM Fellow and Creative Technologist in Residence with the Institute of Creative Technologies at De Montford University.
