Sean is also a practicing research-based artist and writer. His PhD examines the idea of the essay as a methodology where writing, scripting, and coding interweave, and his research and writing have explored the physical infrastructure of the sharing economy, online education, property in the cloud, book scanning, traffic control, and neural networks.
In his spare time, he’s into a lot more stuff: P2P culture/protocols, neural networks, automation and deskilling, education and libraries, data visualisation, theory, techno-pessimism, US politics (unfortunately), contemporary art, chess, ice hockey, basketball, baseball during playoffs, women’s soccer, music, and culture wars.
Nathan has built accessible and user-friendly interfaces for clients including Study Melbourne, The department of premier and cabinet, GMHBA, Frank and Social Ventures Australia. From 2010 Nathan spent five years in Tokyo working with clients such as Red Bull and Adobe. As well as a portfolio rich in front-end development, Nathan has also worked with PHP and many of the popular frameworks.
