Artist Jim Woodall on his practice:

Working across diverse media, including sculpture, photography, video and installation, my practice is rooted in intervention. I was a founding member of CutUp collective, an interventionist art group, from 2004-9.

My work stems from the personal encounter with the built environment and reflects upon how technology and digital media affect this relationship. Through repetitive and endurance action, I explore how memory of space is altered by an increasing reliance upon digital media to do the job of remembering for us. Engaging with memory, event and landscape as objects, I explore how these things are measured in terms of time, distance and volume.
