Ghosts is a series of site specific video sculptures that derives from the motion capture data of anonymous people in Newsreels: The disembodied presence of the witnesses, unwillingly or unknowingly cast in the collective conscience of images, is re-enacted as ghosts; Boundless, place-less, condemned to perpetually repeat the actions that defined them.

Stability is a sculptural work and a series of animations that emerged out of a question in regards to stability and camera rigs. A current trend in filming is to have footage that is as stable as possible. Since the days of Sony’s “Steady Shot” to the current use of Motorized GoPro Gimbals, the trend is to create films that seem as if they where shot by a ghost.
The sculptures and animations of this series reverse this procedure. By using stabilization data to move the physical screen, they aim to restore the physical presence of the subject who witnessed the banal scenes used as footage.
