Skynoise.net is the web-home of Jean Poole*. I’m particularly interested in real-time video, and the relationship between sound and image, especially in a performance context. Lately this has included exploring space and atmosphere through projection mapping, and multi-screen projections.

I’ve performed and produced video material as ‘Jean Poole’ for various events, artists and festivals over the last decade, including gigs in most Australian capital cities as well as Istanbul, Barcelona, Berlin, Los Angeles, Porto, Rome, Jakarta and many cities in Mexico. I’ve spent a few years lecturing and tutoring digital media @ RMIT, Melbourne Uni, Swinburne Uni & VCA. I write for other magazines and websites occasionally, and wrote ten years worth of weekly technology columns for the now defunct 3D World (and have been writing about media technology for even longer). I founded and directed the annual Electrofringe festival in Newcastle.

I currently freelance from a Brunswick studio (Melbourne, Australia) and work on a range of video and audiovisual performances / productions / projections.

Example video projects: concert visuals for Hermitude, Live Video for Gotye, projections for MONA festivals, Music videos for TZUCongo Tardis and Audego. )
( Example video for Theatre : In Between Two, Trapper, Lullaby Movements, Dr Seuss vs Elefant Traks)
( Example video work for clients : filming + documentation, advertisements, informational animations, book promotional videos, etc )
Example cinematography )

To enquire about video-clip direction / production / editing / animation / live video / projection mapping / DSLR camera work / consultation etc.

[[*Jean Poole is a pen-name and video performance name, imagined by a good friend as a French spy character in ‘some kind of biotech espionage movie’. I asked to use it, and it stuck. Birth name = ‘Sean Healy’.]]


  1. Saw your video of patternmachine @ underbelly + Thought you may be interested in our call for proposals. for film projection night at Carriageworks Sydney https://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=241077455902647

  2. I thought you might be interested in seeing something completely different: Harmony.

    I wrote Harmony as an offline tool for creating 3D animated music videos and VJ loops. Just load up the MP3, and choreograph your own music video!

    You can see samples on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/VJChaotic

    You can download the demo version at: http://www.DigitalChaotics.com/Harmony

  4. Hi Jean (or Sean?),

    It’s Bruno from TROPE, part of the Diasynchronoscope project, we never met but you mentioned our work on your tutorial, which we feel very glad about. (on that link: http://www.skynoise.net/edu/right-here-right-now/week-9-lateral-lo-tech-interactivity/)

    Sorry to contact you here, apologies if it’s not a good place for it I couldn’t find your email, but I thought I’d be in touch to let you know what we’ve been up to and to invite you to our next exhibition in London UK (if you happen to be in this part of the world) next month for Kinetica Art Fair, a really cool fair with lots of art/science art exhibitors.
