Artist Statement

Exploring landscape, nature, and the sky, Frieburghaus produces video, sound, print, and objects as a response to sensory experiences. He observes newly discovered places and natural phenomenon that demand attention and presence. While on location, he records video and audio and uses the gathered media clips to investigate time, color, light, and sound. Digital techniques and memory are used to generate new perspectives that ultimately reveal relationships between sight and sound, producing new visual and aural landscapes. A reduction of color and shape, visually communicates the allure of natural forms and vast spaces while sound drives the motion and context of the work. Static works become collage, digital print and 3D objects. When the component of time is a factor, his works become single or multi-channel video on screens, as projections, or installations.
