Andrews relies on chance, gathering video, sound, objects and text through instinct and opportunity. Playing with ordinary and obscure material, he picks and edits precisely, placing wry and fabricated elements into familiar scenes. Using varied and deliberate approaches to research, production and titling, he creates tense cooperation within, and between, the process, form and content of his output. Andrews’ work searches for optimism, yet it often leads to nowhere, aiming past what we think we’re seeing to why we’re being shown it.
