Paul Clipson collaborates with sound artists and musicians on films, live performances, and installations. Aiming to bring to light subconscious visual preoccupations that reveal themselves while working in a stream of consciousness manner, his films combine densely layered, in-camera edited studies of figurative and abstract environments, in a process that encourages unplanned-for results. His films and collaborative performances have been presented at many festivals, galleries and venues around the world, but most often at ATA.
