NES Artist Residency, Skagaströnd, Iceland
In 2017, I undertook a two-month period of research and professional development in Iceland. My practice, which spans several mediums, is experimental and diverse—I investigate different media and photographic methods, from appropriation to pixel and data manipulation, to create unique and innovative works (if I may say so myself). This is a visual journal of research projects and rough workings I investigated during my residency.
Life in a Post-Communist, Late Capitalist World // What are we fighting for? Who knows. When do we want it? Whenever. | A test edit from a 30 minute improvisation by Kerryn McMurdo. The work forms part of a larger ongoing collaborative project that merges Kerryn’s performance practice with my experimental photographic and videographic practice.
