Bondage is a piece about enigma drawing on mystery and fantasy. It is digital in nature, but analog on the surface. The artist uses wood and paper as a vehicle for digital image and sound projecting a Japanese woman in a kimono onto a sliding paper shoji screen. The sounds are sine-waves, but not in a typical ultra-clean design space. The viewer’s presence completes the loop, uncovering parts of Nobuyoshi Araki’s original photograph, scanned left to right in frequency bands producing sound. The quadraphonic sound system is oriented vertically in the plane of the paper screen. The fibers of the paper give an organic surface for the digital pixels. The result is a total environment, a concentrated space where sound meets image, but where interaction is not pushed to the fore. Instead, he attempts to create a magical space, drawing upon the voyeuristic fantasies of the viewer.

Over, Under, Across is a digital video projection work that incorporates drawing and transparent cinemagraphic techniques. The themes of this visual poem are: looking up (over us, "more" than we are), under (down, "less" than we are), and across ("what" we are, across from each other, on the horizontal). These perceptions, acknowledgements and questions have been applied in art for millennia. In this piece, Martin takes on these subjects using current tools that enable him to merge hands-on drawing and painting with light and visual composition.

Devour is a multi-channel video projection in which looped fragments of political disasters and domestic intimacy are locked within the ambiguous menace of enlarged details both human and mechanical.
