Each submission is reviewed by our curatorial staff; in order to be considered for the registry, one must submit work digitally via this website.
I work with video, installation, sound and photography to investigate context. My installations and audio works unite physical and time-based elements and make use of the spatial qualities within video and audio. I am engaged in an investigation of how the use of recorded media within actual space can invite viewers into visceral three-dimensional time-based experiences that encourage reflection and provoke thought. How such presented experiences can resonate in relation to shared cultural experience is of great interest to me.
I use an economy of means to focus on the everyday. COZY ROOM: four arguments for the elimination of television six walks in the fictional woods numbers in the dark makes use of scavenged televisions, each covered with fitted canvas cover (cozy) to create a field of mediated moments that is walked through.
