About Flexer & Sandiland 

Nic Sandiland is a UK-based artist whose work explores movement through installation, performance and film. He is particularly interested in presenting the everyday movements of the viewer as choreography and, since 2000, has increasingly employed interactive digital technology to do this. Recent work has drawn on cinematic techniques, such as slow motion and moving camera mechanisms as ways to elevate the mundane and often overlooked choreography of everyday life.
