"Optical Intoxication" the study into the possibility of manipulating the mind using stimuli is a constant thread of PRICK's work
Excitingly helped create the presentation with Simon Elliott of Ahh... Arts Igniting Minds and Auro Foxcroft of Village Underground who were shortlisted for the Artists Taking the Lead project in London, as part of the celebrations for the 2012 Olympic Games.
After focusing on 'Large Format Paper-Like Video Displays' during a BA of Digital Media at London College of Communication '05, PRICK started getting involved doing visuals for east end London clubs such as TRAILER TRASH & ALL YOU CAN EAT. Such no-holds-barred, ground breaking clubs, enabled PRICKIMAGE to showcase what creative videos and oddities he'd been working on, using the venues as testing grounds with ready and willing audience to tease and entertain...enabling instant reaction, interaction and appreciation enhancing the music and overall enjoyment of an audio visual experience. Coming with a fresh sometimes gurilla perspective can sometimes raise eyebrows!
PRICK got his big break when commissioned to create bespoke visuals to fill stadiums on the 2007 ERASURE World Tour climaxing at Royal Albert Hall. Gigging regularly with performers like Simian Mobile Disco, Miss Kittin, Ellen Alien, Benga & Skream, Kitsune label & many of the MINUS Records crew. At venues such as Centre Pompidou, Barbican Centre, Royal Festival Hall, Hoxton Bar, Electric Cinema & even got a chance to see PRICK visuals played at SPACE, Ibiza. Fashion label clients such as Alfred Dunhill commission projects for their in-store promotion and launches every season
2010 brings much excitement and anticipation for PRICKIMAGE as video art fused with technology & fashion offers many exciting opportunities in an ever evolving arena to interact and wow
