Hybrid Film

Hybrid films combine elements of animation, still photography, painting and drawing, and found images to create dynamic collage-like moving pictures. They are silent and use a fixed frame within which action occurs, which brings them into relation with  painting and film simultaneously. Often treating the landscape as both a stage and an energetic body, they attempt a depiction within a 3-9 minute time frame, of geophysical events taking place on a scale that can only be perceived though fragments, and ways vast temporal scale presents itself in the everyday. The compositional strategies are related to Creole language, incorporating moments of seamless integration alongside a potentially frictive co-existence. These works are made to be exhibited as immersive looped projections. On occasion they will be shown with live audio accompaniment. Full films run between 4 and 9 minutes.
