‘NEOPHYSICAL 01: On The Brink Of A Beautiful Future’
– Mixed Media Audiovisual Installation

‘NEOPHYSICAL 01: On The Brink Of A Beautiful Future’ is part of a new series of artworks and ‘transformative environments’ by visual artist Lucy Benson, titled ‘Liminal Studies / Brink Phenomena’.

It is a techno-positive investigation of liminal states in physicality and identity, human and post-human existence. Border-lines are identified and exploded – opening up the infinite realm of the in-between for exploration and discovery.

Sound design by Jamie Teasdale aka Kuedo.

‘Dream Cargoes’
Live-Cinema Performance

Dream Cargoes is a live-cinema work from Lucy Benson and Marcel Weber featuring an original score by Roly Porter (plus string quartet) and Keith Fullerton Whitman. The concept and screenplay was written by Lucy Benson. Directed by Lucy Benson.

Partly inspired by J.G.Ballard’s story of the same name, Dream Cargoes explores the predicament of the last man on an exploited and abandoned Earth, who, in the toxicity of nano and bio-tech waste witnesses a wondrous flourishing of new life forms and an unprecedented expansion of space and time. The work is performed live by the four artists and a string quartet.

‘Force’ with Actress, Adelaide Festival. Generative audiovisual performance.

Force, a new generative / interactive video work, premiered in March 2013 at Unsound’s Adelaide Festival edition.

Force is a visual project based around a single, gritty presence or entity. It forms, complexifies, fractures and evolves over the duration of the set. Frequency inputs from the music drive the evolution of the imagery and it’s detailed aesthetic, meaning that it is tightly synced and unique to each musical set.

SAVE Festival Trailer

I was commissioned to create the Trailer for Moscow’s SAVE festival.

Working with the festival logo’s distinct form, I pushed it’s shape out into 3d space to create an architectural realm; a sculpture. Reflecting the nature of Save’s musical lineup, the trailer is an investigation of cold industrial lines and warm analogue noise; all softened by the human experience by using deep focal contrast and handheld camera.

‘Cuando la justicia’
Audiovisual Album Release for SCHEME

‘Cuando la justicia’ is the debut audiovisual album release from SCHEME AV Strategies – and an addendum to my performance with Komatssu at LEV Festival 2012 (under the MFO moniker). It features Komatssu’s track of the same name.

The video is a slow-evolving, minimalist, anti-videoclip – that is, I resisted the urge to tightly beat-edit and chose not to condense the hour-long show into 3 minutes. Komatssu’s music weaves it’s thread slowly and surely and I wanted to honour this pacing.

‘We Carry The Past With Us’ CTM Festival 2012

A series of four portraits I created for the installation Das Geschehen (The Event) by Nik Nowak at CTM Festival. Das Gesehen is a sculpture, featuring backlit slides viewable through 24 individual viewfinders.

The portrait series explores archetypes and representation and is a repsonse to the sculpture’s militaristic form. Motivating forces fundamental to human nature are explored through a series of figures, sourced from ancient greek coins.
