Sean O’Keeffe

I'm an artist with a background in drawing, printmaking and music. I make optical-sound works - digital animations and live audio-visual performances, often working in collaboration with other musicians, artists and programmers, in an attempt to create sensate environments and experiences.

As Giant Axe Field, I have devised and presented a series of semi-improvised performances, built around audio-visual, moving image ‘collages’, where sampled cinematic fragments, including image, dialogue, ambient sound and existing score are interwoven with, composed and improvised sound, and manipulated, triggered and edited live using drums, bass, guitar and VJ software.

Via the Open route at Steamhouse I am attempting to prototype a portable, self-assembly, flexible projection screen/surface/sculpture that can be reconfigured and adapted for use in different AV performances in a range of presentation contexts.
