1. This video is part of a series of extremely short video works which set up and knock down expectations, in as brief a time as possible.

    While working full time in an office these works developed as a strategy to maximise my output within the limited time I had to make art. All under 30 seconds and made with materials at hand the works improvise within self imposed short durations and the material constraints. They aim to have an economy and lightness of touch which deflects attention from the work in the artwork. They are improvisations with the time limits and economic constraints of the artist's life.

    Displayed in the gallery on monitors or projections the videos should play once every 1 - 3 minutes.

This is an on-going, diaristic series of short videos that document simple actions and allow them to exist as discrete, singular events. The series imposes a simple constraint on its subject matter (a 30 second time limit) but rather than restricting the outcome this constraint stimulates a variety of effects on the content, structure and narrative of the works.
