My personal experimental and documentary film work is driven by a curiosity and fascination with place and space, inquisitive about their effects on peoples’ minds and emotions. I am most interested in abstracted images that vaguely represent places and spaces by giving hints of the past and future; a physical representation of a location that represents mental and emotional associations within a person’s being. People and the places they connect with are found throughout my films and my documentary work relies heavily on location as character.
My sense of experimental film and artistic practice is influenced by new media and emerging technologies. Combining the notion of interactivity and the internet as both public and artistic space, The PIX Film Project looked to explore the possibilities these give to experimental cinema: Why has experimental cinema been continually overlooked by the mainstream film community? Is it the fault of the corporate exhibition and distribution system? Can new technology help find a viable outlet for experimental cinema? Can new technologies bring experimental works to a larger audience? If audiences are personally engaged with experimental cinema will they be more interested? What does it mean to collaborate and interact? How will the collaborative nature of interactive technologies affect experimental cinema?
