We are gods. Our tools make us gods. In symbiosis with our technology, our powers are expanding exponentially and so, too, our possibilities.
Movies have these transcendent moments where everything is just right, from the dialogue to the music to the lighting to the narrative context; everything is just perfect, and something magical happens - the film breaks through the screen and does something to you.
As a media artist and filmmaker, I'm constantly considering the role of situational context when creating my work.
For me, it's always a failure of the imagination. I have that anxiety that time is passing, that everything is ultimately fleeting and impermanent. I better take advantage of every single moment.
I make short films, little documentaries, about the co-evolution of humans and technology.
There's always going to be the circumstances you can't plan for. There's always the unexpected relevance and the serendipity.
