Audiovisual and Media artist with a multidisciplinary practice.
Currently based in South London, working with digital and analogue media, animation, music/sound design, video, photography and sometimes celluloid film. I develop projects in film-making, AV performance, installations, new media and video art.
An exploratory process of connections, disappearing identities and contemporary concerns surrounding the merging of people and data in systems, filtered through emerging technologies. At the juncture of cinema, design and new media. As a media artist my work incorporates generative algorithms in real-time or rendered processes. The works can involve themes such as Climate change, chaos and disorder, AI, evolution and promotes critical thinking as a way of living.
I'm actively developing projects in "expanded cinema" which combines narrative abstractions of cinematic imagery and live performance, such as for a residency in Krakow in 2019 using sonification techniques from climate data. An abstract, ambiguous and a fictional post human audiovisual film displayed via 10 projectors. Other recent works include Residency and Audiovisual installation called “Site Effects” for Rausch festival in Chemnitz, Germany in August 2019 and a screening at Sound Image Colloquium 2018 in London, Greenwich.
My practice continues to evolve with themes of impermanence, a collective experience of perpetual uncertainty and increasing anomalies from chaotic systems as a by-product of intersecting social technologies.
