Made using a video glitch technique which paints in pixels over the screen, Matter & Light is a hybrid composition of images of seascapes, plants, humans and animals, flowing together propelled by dream-logic. The work is inspired by the painter Turner and by French Impressionism, with most images filmed in Margate in the UK and at the Bay of the Somme in France.
Matter & Light deals with contemporary environmental issues affecting an overflowing, falling-apart world, using low compression and self-produced imagery to achieve a melting painterly look echoing sustainability and poetry. The work experiments with making video art that continues ideas developed in the field of painting. Painterly traditions are applied to moving digital form to reflect on the current world.
