British based artist working with installation, video and sonic media
Roger Bourke has exhibited widely including Poland  Germany  Hungary  Italy  France  Romania  Canada  China  Japan  Ireland  and  UK
Working mainly with video installation and the play of light and sound on material surface, these works often deal with the results or 'aftermath' of certain simple actions. The resulting work attempts to occupy a field of sensory experience where the visual merges with the sense of our own body : of touch,  movement, and our awareness of space and proximity
