Work by Artist and Director Pete Gomes.
My personal work as a filmmaker is intrinsically related to the emergence and development of the internet, and the rise in personal computing. In runs in parallel to the birth and development of net.art and media art, following the same themes, trajectories, and aesthetics; work that often moves forward based on available and emerging technologies and the new ideas they bring. The intention in 1997 was to purposely follow an intersection between cinema, and language of film, and new technology; an intersdisciplinary approach.
Superimposition, optical printing, mattes expanded by technology; explorations in the textures of new technologies and connections to their earliest conceptual and aesthetic roots. I see my films and videos as a network. A non linear path of development, both stylistic or conceptual. They criss-cross and interlink in different ways; a mesh.
