I make video and interactive media art in Toronto. Born in Kitchener, grew up in London, I completed a college diploma at OIART for audio engineering in 2001. After a short stint in a recording studio, I attended OCAD University and received my BFA in 2009. I have shown work at various film fests and galleries, including the Images Festival, Interaccess, Gallery 1313, and North End Studios.
Most of my work focuses on the perception and representation of time. Slow-moving, non-narrative scenes that translate the moments originally recorded to the moments spent reviewing. The anticipatory experience of watching the piece is an important relation to the content itself, and for this I try to give the viewer multiple points of entry: aesthetically, rhythmically, meditatively, etc. What does it mean to be in the now? How is it influenced by what just happened seconds or minutes ago? How do we know it is actually now? I don't often begin working on a piece with these questions in mind, but they invariably seem to surface before I'm finished.
