Nicholas is an Audiovisual and multidisciplinary artist based in SE London.
His work involves combining the processes of digital and analogue media, animation, music/sound design, video, photography and sometimes celluloid film. He develops projects in film-making, AV performance, installations, new media and video art. Sometimes converging these processes into one or working separately. He explores 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 art.
As a media artist his practice involves blending sound or music with visual imagery using software and generative algorithms in real-time or rendered processes. The works involve themes such as Climate change, chaos and disorder and provoke critical thinking as a way of living.
He's developing projects in "expanded cinema" which combines narrative abstractions of cinematic imagery and live performance. For example, on a residency in Krakow in 2019 He produced an audiovisual performance using sonification techniques from climate data. The work was an abstract, ambiguous and a fictional post human viewpoint. The film was performed live across 4 wall surfaces of 360 degrees and was 16000 pixels in width.
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 of an Audiovisual film.
His practice continues to develop with concepts of impermanence and the human experience of perpetual uncertainty.
