DIRTY CHURCHES-VIDEO ART-MUSIC-PERFORMANCE-INSTALLATION
My work comes from a natural compulsion to make things. I constantly feel myself drawn to the idea of combining methods and mediums.The seed of a project is cultivated through pencil sketches, musical composition and writing. Once I have a theme for a piece I define it's components and form collaborations to expand it's potential. Currently I have been collaborating with Rachel Blackwell to create multi media performances and installations. Our installations consist of a hybrid of video projections, performance and sculpture. The sculpture is designed by hand with structural drawings and installation layouts. The sculptural elements are paired with musical compositions for synthesizers, strings, percussion and samples and performed by DIRTY CHURCHES. I believe that art can happen anywhere, at anytime. I don't feel constrained to one medium when the larger picture requires more.
