India Material is an artistic take on the spiritual concept of reincarnation, the endless cycle of birth, death, and rebirth. The fruit of an artist residency in India, the works integrate video with early forms of animation and historic devices, precursors to modern time-based media. The loop in particular acts as a vehicle to virtually sculpt from everyday life essential, alas transient moments while keeping everything in flux – replay ad infinitum.
