My films and installations mine the underlying perceptual and material properties of cinema (light and shadow, transience, flicker, incessant motion) as potential means for images to slip away from their documentary underpinnings, and manifest as experiential entities in their own right.
My aim is to activate a process of re-perception; to etch an after-image on the minds eye, which persists there as a lens through which to re-see the world. I’m interested in the fleetingly ordinary – the material surface of an everyday world seen as a glimpse in passing.
