His interest in moving image is principally informed by the body of work created by artists, whose concerns are not narrative or documentary. As the moving image became appropriated by storytellers and conveyers of ideology and information in the early part of the 20th Century, these visual artists sought to use the medium for other purposes. Having dispensed with narrative as a means of structuring time, many turned to music as the model to organise the duration of this new visual time-based medium. Explored in this way, the moving image becomes a more abstract potential, freed from the structure of representation, concerned instead with the materiality of the medium; light and darkness, colour, movement and rhythm. Current and emergent digital technologies and software offer the artist the possibility of blurring the boundaries between existing art-forms even further.

His work covers a range of activities: as an artist making moving image work for single-screen viewing, gallery installation and live performance: as a facilitator of arts education project work with regional, national and international arts organisations in collaboration with composers, musicians and dancers. The outcomes of these projects can also be work for single screen, multi-screen installation or live mixing and projection of video and digital imagery for performance.
