Dan Norton’s work looks at information systems. He looks at engagment and control through objects, movement, and data. The intention is to attune the impulse to act, the desire for stimulus, and the will to resist. He uses loops and consequences, where actions trigger event. A viewer can gorge themselves on electrons or do nothing. Elaborate feedback leads to silence, as surely as the lead guitarist winds up deaf.

Using for example eye tracking, motion data, low resolution cameras, digital collections, sonic and graphic triggers, surveillance street lighting. His work is shown in different arenas including fine art, film, technology, science, and public spaces. 

Recent works have been with British Council, Leonardo, IJART, ILI, Sonar D+, Heinrich Böll Foundation, and Brot Für Die Welt.

Current (2016-) researcher with Machine Vision Group at Computer Vision Centre, and Associate Professor at Department of Computer Science, University Autonoma Barcelona.
