Video artist Christopher Steadman has just been selected for a show curated by Video Art pioneer, Gary Hill, at Seattle's Center on Contemporary Art. 

Tell us about sounds and objects you work with?
The sounds I use are all recorded at the time of shooting. Sometimes I create the soundscape before the video. The sound for all my work, especially the more recent pieces, is as important as the visuals. Mostly they work in harmony. As far as objects, I don’t think there is anything I wouldn’t use in a piece as long as it makes sense in context. I’ve used a cup of tea, rubber gloves, an elevator… When I shoot on location it becomes as much about the setting as it does about any subject material or theme.
