We are called inkyfilm because most of the stuff on this site starts with drawing and note taking leading to art and film-making. Much of these sometime inksomniac markings occur in nocturnal waking hours.
Why Animal Machine?
Machine Life is the condition distinct to our species and that is what this work is mainly about. The world of now, it's pre and postisms, the global machine, human impact on the environment; what is often referred to as the Anthropocene. It all apparently started with the cosmological BIG BANG, energy proceeding to matter, the primary elements/stars and galaxies/higher elements/planets/
geology/chemistry/biology/botanical/animal/human/machine. This evolutionary anthropic, machinic membrane enveloping, penetrating and emitting from Planet Earth is, then, a biologically constructed trauma machine;
an animal machine. This is the subject the art here investigates using
Influences incude: Expressionism, Science, Philosophy, Abstraction, Cartoons from William Hogarth to Robert Crumb, Physics, Biology, Genetics, Street Art, Manga, Fleisher Brothers, Anime, Game Art, Adverts, Cinema, 80s copy art and more. Out of these develops a personal visual expression of an unpredictable and changing world.
