Predominantly, I use light as a form of paint, space as an extension of the canvas and the video camera as a polymorphic visual tool - not because I do not trust my eyes but because every moment is fleeting,
I wanted to make sense of this perpetual visible invisibility call experience.
The concern within my work is towards perception and new ways of looking at everyday objects, daily activities and situations. Preconceived ideas may lead people to missing alternative perspectives which could be just as valid or illuminate a thing in an unexpected manner that re-informs it. No two people see the same thing, yet this thing can itself be seen from more than one perspectives. This could be a reversal, or it could be a multiplicity of angles.
My attempt at capturing glimpses of an experience which inevitably dissipates leads to the recent video works, that explore and capture through investigative play. These works were directed by the actuality of an event, of places and of people. The positioning of the video cameras took on a 'functional' role in probing relationships between how we see and what we think we see. In these works the camera became my surrogate eyes. These investigations expand out into photography, sculpture and installation.
