Born in 1973 in Hastings, New Zealand, Daniel Crooks has lived and worked in Melbourne since completing a Post Graduate Diploma at the Victorian College of the Arts School of Film and Television in 1993. Working across digital video, photography and now sculpture, his practice explores the elasticity of movement in time and space. Best known for his ‘time slice’ video technique – slicing ribbons of varying thicknesses into a video stream to create a lyrical displacement of time and space – Daniel Crooks has now extended these exploration into the real world through three dimensional sculptural works; a new area of practice made possible through an Ars Electronica Futurelab Residency in Linz (2014) and a recent Creative Australia New Work grant from the Australia Council (2014).
