An energetic multi-disciplinary explosion of colour, Jaygo works bending video and graphic streams in the production of interactive installations, mashed up games systems and live visuals for the likes of Franz Ferdinand.

Bloom recently premiered his new biologically governed open network WORLDWIDEWEGG.

Projects range from a global grooves games console TAO JOYSTICK , an 8bit latino percussive interface MARRAKATTAK and an unwilling audience target device BUMP.
