Artist Statement

These images were created to accompany shows produced by Poetry Sydney for more than ten years. To find a discrete part of the wavelength of a poetry show is a fairly tricky business, video tends to demand attention, it must support, not overwhelm, to achieve a positive result.

Julian D Young is an avatar of the digital entity dvd2u. He can be found swinging around various devices in pursuit of coherence most of the time. He has done this ever since his friend told him he should buy a computer sometime last century.
