Andrew Burgress - film and video artist
Andrew works with found footage and shoots video; he uses photographs, scanned images and sound, that he takes from all over the place and filters through a 'cut-up' process to create a landscape of texture and atmosphere that imply his own social, political and psychological identity, this identity is never rigid and can only be touched upon through erratic signals of dislocation, contradiction and imbalance.
