Bio: Ian Winters is an award winning video & media artist working at the intersections of performance, architectural form, and time-based media. In addition to individual work he often collaborates with composers, directors, and choreographers to create both staged and open-ended media environments through performance, visual and acoustic media.
Much of my recent work has centered around collaborative devised projects with choreographers, performers, and musicians – in both staged projects and site specific installations.
Currently I am pursuing conceptual interests in how imagery formed at certain perceptual limits such as very low-resolution video, subtly changing series of images, and temporal distortions such as extreme time lapse / compression change our experience of social spaces, and, seemingly private experience.
As an artist I strive to make technology (if used) an essential inseparable tool — but still to be fundamentally a tool for exploration rather than a means in itself. Even when the conceptual or political material may be complex — such as explorations of memory & series; temporality, scale and physical sites; exploration of the complex social relationship of technology and the landscape; and the intersections of live performance, the social and technology — I see the emerging role of technology as one of a fundamental democratisation / opening of individual and social possibility.
