John Crawford is an intermedia artist, performance director and systems designer. Engaging directly with the emerging technologies of our time, his work creates rich immersive environments and compelling interactive experiences through embodied interaction.
His artistic projects are performed in theatres, exhibited in galleries and presented as interactive installations, featuring creative exploration of environmentalism, climate justice and community engagement. His work investigates how the human desire to transform our environment is unleashing destructive forces that endanger the world and everything in it, including ourselves.
Projects currently in development include Cryosphere Crisis, Leave A Trace and YO~MO. He originated the "Active Space" concept for his intermedia software framework which he has continued to evolve and develop for almost thirty years, dedicated to connecting body-centered artistic practices with evolving methods for expanded media performance and multi-site interactivity.
