What is the idea behind Remapping? One of the main threads in my work is the treatment of time as a physical material, so suing the moving image to really look at time as a tangible and malleable medium. My aim is to render the viewer's model of the world a little less concrete.
What is the process of creation? Everything is shot with a video camera and then processed in the computer. I use off-the-shelf software but also write code to control most aspects of the process.
Do you have a favourite piece? It depends. Usually the one I'm working on is the least favourite as it'll be causing the most headaches.
What's next? I'm working towards a large commission next year and also a residency at the FutureLab in Linz.
