THE CONCEPT
As an artist who mixes cinema with emerging technologies, I often focus on the physical properties of generating the moving image.

An early publication by Kodak boasted that their film was 'animal, vegetable, and mineral'--bragging how all the materials used to make the celluloid of the early movie industry came from the natural world. The term 'silver screen' derived from the actual embedding of silver into silk fabric, while even earlier shadow puppet shows projected onto opaque animal skin. The history of film began with environmentally responsible materials.

This series of artworks considers alternative natural materials as screens, as if cinema had continued to evolve with sustainable elements instead of being influenced by the industrial and digital ages
