Travelling between landscapes, from the natural environment through to the built. Living in symbiosis, one sculpts the other, in a continuous state of flux.

MESH THE PLACE UP .50, 2018, video still frame
Single channel video, 50 seconds

MESH THE PLACE UP.50 is a moving image work created through the animation of analogue and digital media. These abstracted city visions and wobbly portraits envision the computerised flow of imagined beings in a morphing cyberscape; the squishy populace of a digital mesh.

Rattle, 2018, video still frame
Single channel video, 60 seconds

Rattle is an experimental poetry film born from poet, artist & filmmaker Mark Niehus. Read and move through the engaging flash of images that hang from the cuffs of a poem that reminds us that “We rattle because we are made of moments too many to hold fast.”

Eight Word Stories, 2016
HD video 1920x1080, 45 seconds

Eight Word Stories presents five "micro narratives" - very short collections of (eight) words, that convey a complete story in the utmost of brevity. They explore the bare essence of a story needed to prompt a human response. 
Using custom software, randomness is added to the letters, creating subtle dynamics and unpredictability in language and meaning.

Grounding (5, 4, 3, 2, 1), 2016
Video, 44 secs

While researching for this work, I helped a stranger through a small anxiety attack with the 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 method of paying attention to what we could see, hear, touch, smell and taste. Afterwards, I realised that I had always sought to achieve a similar sense of grounding in my practice and looked at what I would focus on should I reach a similar point on Rundle Street, aware that such an attack could happen to anyone at anytime.

WIMP: Windows, Icons, Menus & Pointers. 

Sweet stories told in the language of computer and mobile screen icons. The nostalgia of an #earlyApple desktop contrasts with #lateWindows working day parade.  #mobMe texts in icons of social media;  #screenFever flushes out the graphical creatures inhabiting our interfaces; while #playTime points to pure entertainment.
