John McCormick is a technology based artist with a major interest in human movement. John has collaborated on works worldwide, including at peak festivals ISEA, ZERO1SJ, SIGGRAPH, Melbourne Festival, Venice Biennale, Siggraph Asia, Institute of Contemporary Art (ICA) London, Ars Electronica, Monaco Dance Forum and Art Science Museum Singapore. John was a founding member of Company In Space, Dancehouse, Squaretangle and Wild System. John’s current artistic research centres on intelligent agents that can, amongst other things, learn to dance from human dancers and use this learned behaviour to create collaborative performances with human performers. Lately he has been investigating robots as collaborative performing partners and the use of deep learning and neural networks to enable non-human systems to co create artworks with humans. Recent works with Wild System include the robotic artwork Child in the Wild presented at Art Science Museum Singapore and City of Androids in Melbourne.
