My current video practice explores a hallucinatory, sensation-centered view of space, time and the world in which chance apparitions and ephemera are elevated to the same status as solid, pictorial objects. I am interested in non-narrative, non-rational uses of video, employing it to depict intuitive, fictional and speculative events and the molten realities which emerge from them.

The video is entitled Penetration, (2006). Filmed in London’s Piccadilly Circus, this silent video depicts the deconstruction of capitalist icons by fragmenting familiar symbols and logos and reassembling them in a chaotic, mesmerizing visual collage. http://www.vimeo.com/5109503
