"My work is experimental in the Frankensteinian sense - a practice carried on in the shadows without official sanction. The unholy union of disparate elements stitched together into strange new forms is central to film. The hope is that something inviolate may one day arise from my experiments, something that ultimately transcends its creator." Toby Tatum 2018.
