Biography


Born Hast­ings, New Zealand 1973

Lives and works in Melbourne


Daniel Crooks works pre­dom­i­nant­ly in video, pho­tog­ra­phy and sculp­ture. He is best known for his dig­i­tal video and pho­to­graph­ic works that cap­ture and alter time and motion. Crooks manip­u­lates dig­i­tal imagery and footage as though it were a phys­i­cal mate­r­i­al. He breaks time down, frame by frame. The result­ing works expand our sense of tem­po­ral­i­ty by manip­u­lat­ing dig­i­tal time slices’ that are nor­mal­ly imper­cep­ti­ble to the human eye.

Crooks’ works are in notable pub­lic col­lec­tions, includ­ing, Nation­al Gallery of Aus­tralia, Can­ber­ra; M+ / Muse­um of Visu­al Cul­ture, Hong Kong; Aus­tralian Cen­tre for the Mov­ing Image, Mel­bourne; Muse­um of Old and New Art, Hobart; Muse­um of Con­tem­po­rary Art Aus­tralia, Syd­ney; Nation­al Gallery of Vic­to­ria, Mel­bourne; Queens­land Art Gallery | Gallery of Mod­ern Art, Bris­bane; Art Gallery of New South Wales, Syd­ney; and the Chartwell Col­lec­tion, Auckland.
