I find the medium of the moving image a powerful means for not only experimentation for engagement on various levels but very enjoyable because of the added possibilities of motion (time) and sound. I use this medium to experiment with narrative and rhythm as well as making more documentary-oriented films. One of my first films "Wrapping for a Marginal Citizen" won a prize in the documentary category in a Dutch provincial film festival in 1995. However usually I make videos where the visuals, sounds and text (narrative) hopefully touch the viewer primarily as an aesthetic experience. Making videos has also been a way for me to combine music (by friends who are musicians) with my visual work. It has also been a way to explore process and presentation such as in "Ablutions" (1995) which is a recording of a performance, presented as a projection between 4 pillars. These days I regularly create video installations where video is incorporated into an architectural or sculptural setting. A 2020 short essay some of my Moving Image works.

I am gradually converting animations, games and interactive screenworks made in flash between 1999 and 2018 into other formats and will add links as I get to them.
