I create experimental animations that distort perceptions of reality. These works are focused on creating composition through shape, color, time and motion. Sound plays a very important role in my animation. Audio sound waves are used to drive the momentum and the visual aesthetic of the piece. Syncing sound and movement is key to creating engaging and multi-dimensional animations. In this work I explore the screening of 3D environments on 2D surfaces, thus challenging our preconceptions of space. These environments represent reality, but are physically impossible outside of the computer. This is represented through infinite reflections or many elements from various sources composited onto a single image. Computer software is essential to creating my work, and my experience working inside of the software is often reflected in the finished artwork. The computer influences my work both procedurally and conceptually.
