ABOUT

E_empire
 

My practice reflects lifelong fascinations with the functional environments associated with the corporate/industrial/municipal, and with a nondualistic conception of the world, which both feeds and is informed by my interest in Buddhism, where states considered to be binary opposites can co-exist in the same time and place. While intellectual concepts form part of my practice, the triggering factors reside more in the heightened sense of reality as encountered in dreams and moments of clarity. Photography and photomontage has been the basis of much of my more recent practice, but I employ whichever medium I find most appropriate for a given project, and have used sculpture, assemblage, and chocolates moulded from my own body.

My sound work involves the creation of improvised noise/soundscapes, often using electronics and flute under the alias Flooded Access. I perform in the audio/visual project on&off. My solo performances often incorporate NASA space footage, as my sounds aim to evoke a connection with a wider sense of being. I also live score silent movies and other public domain visual material.
