Sandra Crisp’s work uses found visuals stored in a digital archive which are reworked and recycled over time. Through a process of continual cutting/pasting and layering/erasing new connections evolve between the diverse elements of screen sourced and media images, Internet text/graphics and personal photos. This process and these images explore today’s constant saturation of images and information.
Often constructed slowly over long periods of time, her moving image work and large-format layered prints follow a ‘low-tech’ approach. Practice takes place within small corners of various image editing,video or 3d animation software (off-the shelf, ubiquitous, and free) using digital process to filter complex everyday information.
Currently Sandra is researching Processing and generative art whilst writing mini- programs to generate new screen-based visuals.
