Julian studied Fine Art Painting at Glasgow School of Art. His practice as a landscape painter observing rhythm and light in the urban environment is ongoing. Following art school, he approached architects in Glasgow and started a 3D computer visualisation business.
Tweakable is an audio-visual programming environment that runs in the browser. Users can build an algorithmic system by selecting components and connecting them together. Source data travels between components. They are transformed as parameters change, culminating in audio visual output. Knobs, sliders and other interactive elements can be assembled to create a user interface, enabling the algorithm to be tweaked in real time. As experiencers interact they become active participants, and the divide between making and listening breaks down.
