Forms of Disappearance have been a research focus of mine for the past couple of years during which I have been studying methods of deception and self-deception, cultural camouflage and mimicry, aerial photography and surveillance, invisibility and technology.
My current research involves traditional Chinese puppetry, nano quadcopter (drone) swarms, 360 video and electronic handheld devices. Having observed the pervasive operation and performative function of electronic consumer handheld device I am looking at how the codes of an old, traditional, analog craft can coexist with and influence the new code of digital devices, interfaces, storytelling, movement, image- and sound making.
