Coliseum consists of four video works that explore the shifting relationships between work and play, talk and action, the daily and the dramatic. The rhythms of language are constants in each piece: heated discussions of arcane knowledge, theatrical monologues, the physical dialogue between a group of athletes.

"The digital model of photography has been driven by the same desires and obsessions that have continually drawn artists to cameras and darkrooms. In photography, every invention provokes a response from artists. From the dryplate negative to the first handheld cameras, new technology has been a dare to produce something which transcends it’s own novelty."
