This video was designed to be projected in a darkened space at much larger than human scale so the impact of the figure moving towards the viewer is overwhelming.

My artwork has slowly evolved to utilise video in a number of ways; in installations, through the development of stand-alone pieces of video and occasionally as a documentary record of other art endeavours. Most of my work dwells on some aspects of religion, human perception or the slowed-down sensations experienced in meditation.The use of video has become a way of creating environments that encourage a slowing down – a move away from the usual overstimulation associated with urban existence. Natural phenomena, the landscape and various bodily or aural phenomena are used to create a meditative and reflective ambience.
