About

Simon Emberton is a digital artist and researcher who explores the creative potential of software and hardware.  His current research enhances visual perception underwater. This is achieved through post-processing underwater imagery to alleviate poor contrast and the distortion in the perception of colour caused by the processes of scattering and absorption. Contributions of the research are novel algorithms that go beyond the state of the art in the domains of underwater dehazing and colour correction. In the future he plans to continue developing software as well as create a wearable system that processes imagery in real time to enable novel interactive experiences.

He studied Fine Art: Painting at the Glasgow School of Art, Communication Art & Design at the Royal College of Art and more recently on the Media & Arts Technology PhD Programme at Queen Mary University of London.  Simon is currently employed as a Senior Lecturer in Creative Technologies at the University of the West of England.

He has worked both individually and collaboratively with the likes of Scanner & United Visual Artists, the Paris-based D-Labs, Codasign, Special Projects and Susan Collins. Simon`s work has been exhibited as reactive and interactive installations, digital artworks and innovative designs at places that include the Bath Music Festival, Oxford Christmas Light Festival, Forge Music & Arts Venue, La Gaite Lyrique, Science Museum, Design Museum and GV Art Gallery.
