My work explores the narrative potential of new media in art. Influenced by my study of other media such as film, literature, and videogames, I hide the intent of my work deep within its structure and challenge the viewer to discover its obscured significance. My production techniques constantly evolve to match the concept of my work. From classic cinematography, to more modern compositing effects, and a range of animation techniques (stop-motion, 2D, 3D), I am constantly pushing my understanding of time-based media to expand my capabilities as an artist.
