Light Reading(s): Visual Mix (2003) is a single channel video based on a live performance with a hand-held photocell that varies the flow of electric current according to the amount of light falling upon it. The resulting sound translation is sent through an assortment of custom sensors and vintage processors, generating a luminous single channel video projection and droning, delicate or scratchy surround sound.

Cat Mouse Trio is a 3-channel installation that uses multiple perspectives, unscripted choreography, and the art of play to explore how a multiple viewpoints revolve around an invisible locus.

Three videographers shot the video and assigned these rules: videotape one another, ignore the camera that is recording you, and keep the action moving.  The videographers act as both predator and prey across an urban terrain while simultaneously creating and documenting. A form of anti-choreography such that Cat Mouse Trio performs the video landscape and prompts viewers to form relationships between the three video screens.

Static Room (2003) is a two-channel video installation of an abstract composition created from manipulated static with an audio track generated directly by the same signal - the flickering, strobing image itself. The resulting space immerses the viewer in an ephemeral synesthetic environment where one can hear the image and see the sound.

Trevor (1999) is the manipulated video footage of musician Trevor Wishart, with his words electronically slurred into a stream of synthesized gibberish. Our attempts to understand what he is trying to communicate are frustrated as both he and the viewer are subjected to digital control.
