iloobia (UK 1972) aka Tim Grabham is a visual artist currently living and working in London. His current preferred mediums are film, video and animation. Since hi-jacking his father’s super 8mm camera at the age of 14 he has been exploring improper ways to create moving images ever since, subsidizing independent short and feature length works with commercial and broadcast work.
His first feature film, KanZeOn - a sensory exploration of sound in Japan co-directed with academic and musician Neil Cantwell has screened internationally, and he is now collaborating with film writer and mycology fanatic Jasper Sharp on his second feature - The Creeping Garden, exploring the plasmodial slime mould.
His work is influenced by rituals, sound, destruction, disorientation, micro organisms and altered dream-states. Projects evolve over time, with only loose parameters set to allow material to be spontaneously and instinctively accumulated. Subsequently, the themes and narratives manifest naturally over time as they are pieced together in the edit with randomness playing a huge role in the end result.
