Solar Drums is a short video from the short/cuts series. The short/cuts series collected video works each under one minute in length that explore various approaches to the video medium. From experiments in video collage, digital rotoscoping, analog and digital mash-ups, abstraction and image processing, as well as small slices of life. The pieces drawn from an extended series of work created in 2006 represent a video equivalent to drawing- an immediate, engaged, and instinctual practice within the video medium. The works from the extended series have been screened and exhibited in a number of different formats, combinations, and venues. Individual pieces and specific groupings of work from the extended series have been screened in Cinema Differents, in Paris, France, at the European Media Arts Festival in Osnabrück, Germany, at the Ad Hoc Arts Space in Brooklyn, NY, and at the Frederick Layton Gallery in Milwaukee, WI among other venues.
