Steven Ball

Steven Ball studied at Maidstone College of Art and has worked in film, video, sound and installation since the early 1980s. In the late 1980s he moved to Melbourne, Australia. There he continued his practice making a number of film, video and sound and installation works, as well as being engaged in various curatorial, administrative, teaching and writing activities.

Since returning to the UK in 2000 he has worked predominantly with digital video, producing a series of works, which among other things, are particularly concerned with digital material processes and spatial representation. More recently he has been developing these concerns through collaborative live video performance. He is currently Research Fellow at the British Artists' Film and Video Study Collection, Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design in London.
