Like many of my generation I grew up suckling on a cathode ray tube and bathing in radio waves. All this is depicted within my work, in a collage of movement, light and sound.
Currently with my work I am exploring ways of dissolving the boundaries between cinematography and sculpture. My recent investigations of this theme have involved the usage of computers combined with mechanical elements to create mandala like installations. These installations are my medium and I use them to create ephemeral animations. This ephemeral choreography of movement is the focal point of my work.
I believe this fascination with moving imagery and the transformation of objects stems from my youth where early home computers of the 1980s gave me a glimpse into the wonderful world of applied mathematics. On these computers it was possible with simple codes to generate fantastic abstract patterns and sounds and that encounter destroyed forever the boundary in my mind between abstract and real.
Dance also plays a significant role in my work; I was drawn to it through electronic music. Electro with its synthesized sound introduced me to break-dance and my soul was captured by the beauty of choreographed physical movement.
