Most Likely to Succeed is an interactive installation exploring bias, fairness and AI, in which your performance in a series of on-screen assessment challenges is used to determine the amount of time you are given to play a physical game.

I worked as the core developer/technologist for the 'AirWeShare' interactive installation as part of the Climate and Cities collective. Commissioned by Hubbub, the piece was on public display for 2 weeks in Covent Garden, London. The piece used a system of balloons and spotlights to enable people to compare air quality in different parts of the city. More info. Press: BBC Radio LondonThe Evening Standard.
