British artist Doug Foster (b. 1961, UK) Foster is well known for his complex video works, which transform footage taken from nature or urban landscapes into hypnotic abstract compositions designed to stimulate primal areas of the brain. Through his work he creates imagery that affects people on a visceral level. Years of research into the human visual system has informed his practice and his use of repeating spatial patterns and subtle temporal rhythms. His works are often presented as large scale audiovisual installations that appear as abstract compositions at first glance, but soon reveal themselves as constructed with intricately filmed elements from nature.
