Seb Lee-Delisle

Seb Lee-Delisle is a digital artist and speaker who uses computers to engage with people and inspire them.

As an artist, he likes to make interesting things from code that encourage interaction and playfulness from the public. Notable projects include Lunar Trails, featuring a 3m wide drawing machine, and PixelPyros, the Arts Council funded digital fireworks display that toured nationwide in 2013.

As a speaker he demystifies programming and explores its artistic possibilities. His presentations and workshops enable artists to overcome their fear of code and encourage programmers of all backgrounds to be more creative and imaginative.

He won 3 Microsoft Critter awards in 2013, including Web Personality of the Year and Voice of the Year (best presenter) and he was Technical Director on Big and Small, the BBC project that won a BAFTA in 2009. Notable clients include BBC, Lego, Sony, Microsoft, Google, MLB, Nickelodeon, Philips, and Unilever.

Getting artistic with code

Venturing into the unknown is scary, but fun things happen when you try new things. Seb will show you that it's rewarding to get out of your comfort zone and blur the boundaries between artist and coder. He'll be talking about his recent experiments with Laser Light Synths, his digital fireworks display, PixelPyros, and of course, expect some dangerous live demos.
