For my research-based practice; physical installation and digitally manipulated imagery converge in material spaces or online. These challenge how we experience the events of the everyday and social phenomena, fusing sociology and strands of philosophy with art. 
 
Edited films and still digital images often feature in the multimedia compilations. They detail an essence of transient events and digitally transformed real-spaces that are attentive to the excessive culture developing around us at great speeds.My diverse mixed media projects thread humanity with space and digital technologies. 
As my work deals with a social conception of places, previous projects have played with how we physically interact with ephemeral projections in a constructed installation space.  
 
Digital prints and films have been inspired by film theories associated with time and human experience. The imagery is often extracted from moments where there is a significant, obscure social construct at play in the environment. In fusing these films with installation, they enhance various environments with alternative narratives.

Online Installation / Data CAPTCHA / Navigating the web  

Film - WAVEDATA - 2018 - Amy Foster  
Image generated from spontaneous visual data conversion in post-production editing. Conceptually, the film represents the changeability and unpredictability of digital softwares.  
 
‘Online installation’ can take form with careful curation of a body of images and how they are accessed on the web. Going beyond traditional observation or scrolling, this practice can enhance engagement with work presented online. In extending the artist’s physical renditions of moments in time to a digital platform – the work has potential to offer a space of escape and intelligent commentary on the overabundance of material on the net. 
Unfamiliarity encourages curiosity to explore the constructed web space rather than aid a de-sensitivity to the excess of consumer information. To encode information for ourselves, to attach humanity to an increasingly automated world – is to engage with our sensate abilities that are lost on artificial intelligence.
