Sohan Ariel Hayes is an award-winning animator and visual artist who works across media. His early work centred on cathartic exploration of the body through an integration of performance, video and machine. The electrical nature of this work inevitably led him to the computer where he has spent most of his time since attempting to fuse the ideas of ‘PVM (performanceVideoMachine)’. Working from a predominantly digital studio format he has output work for festival poster designs, public art sculptures, computer games, films, realtime and rehearsed projections for theatre and still photography. Recently he has directed the completion of The Paper Tale, a short animated film set in a paper world and currently he is launching into the field of interactive arts and working collaboratively on an audio-visual interactive installation under the title of DATADRUM.
