About the Work
“My current explorations seek to compare and contrast the ways in which the human brain perceives, processes and interprets visual imagery gathered from everyday experiences, with imagery that is generated solely through the use of digital technology, for example, images created through video-editing application and computer graphics software.”
“By gathering raw footage of objects, environments and people, then editing this footage to include psychedelic colours and movements juxtaposed within, it is hoped that the viewer will reconsider the degree to which visual perception can border between the natural and the synthetic.”
