Dan Tapper is an artist who explores the sonic and visual properties of the unheard and invisible. From revealing electromagnetic sounds produced by the earth’s ionosphere, to exploring hidden micro worlds and creating imaginary nebulas made from code, his explorations use scientific methods alongside thought experiments resulting in rich sonic and visual worlds. Dan also regularly uses his skills as a creative coder and interactivity designer to help artists and musicians facilitate projects, these range from building a 20 ton stone boat embedded with interactive soundscapes and pressure sensors to digital video feedback software and audio reactive light environments. Dan studied Creative Music Technology at Bath Spa University, and is currently completing an MFA in Visual Studies at York University. Recent solo exhibitions include: Turbulent Forms, Factory Media Centre, Hamilton (2019) and Canadian Music Centre and New Adventures in Sound Art (2017); Physical Media Matter,  Degrassi Art Space, Toronto (2016); and A Machine to Listen to the Sky, American Museum, Bath, UK (2013).
