Ars Electronica, Austria
In 2008 Annie Ivanova established the Australian Residence at the FutureLab,in a five-year partnership with Ars Electronica.
Daniel Crooks is recognised for his 'time-slice' works. In his videos he uses techniques of angle variation, light diffusion and chromatic patterning. The artworks reveal time's unseen rhythms and patterns.
He is drawn to opposed subjects, like high-speed trains and solitary drifters. These intense contrasts amplify the feeling of human presence in everyday social life.
In 2014 he took part in the program to research “Real Imaginary Objects”.
'Real Imaginary Objects' is part of the 2014 Ars Electronica festival. The project was developed in collaboration with the FutureLab. The Australian Artist-in-Residence program was initiated and produced by Ivanova/Novamedia in partnership with the Australia Council for the Arts and Ars Electronica.
