Neil Milton is a writer and artist. Developing on his fine art practice, his latest works explore audio-visual media. Inspired by collage, experimental film, expanded cinema and VJing, his work is a dialogue between the elements of sound, image and textual language. In particular, he explores the relationship between words and their sonification, text as semantic signifier and aesthetic image. Previously immersed in club culture, thematically he is engaged by issues of substance, altered states, spiritual transcendence, meditative bodily expression, and furthering communication. He is also interested in the therapeutic aspects of sound and its use as a medium for exploring ‘ill’ mental states.
