Currently working as a freelance creative and developer, Jason Haggerty has a multidisciplinary practice that spans art, design and technology.

 

With formal training in fine art, digital media, and interactive media, Haggerty works in a multitude of environments in several different media. Recent years, however, have been focused on developing his real-time procedural programming skills in software such as TouchDesigner and Notch, in combination with 3D modelling for screen, graphic and web design, and video production.

With a penchant for real-time media, Jason creates live audio-visual performances for festivals such as Rainbow Serpent Festival and is producing full-dome AV works to be premiered in the US in 2019. He has also created interactive visuals for stage, using Notch integrated with Black Trax.

Employing, motion-tracking, depth cameras, touch screens and custom-built controllers, Jason has devised and developed many interactive installations, including interactive artworks for Griffith University, HOTA, and Glow Festival.
