James Davoll is a multi-disciplined artist working across creative digital media, video installation, film, photography and sound. He is based at Culture Lab, Newcastle University, UK. His practice explores specific landscapes asking questions of their contemporary role, relevance and our emotive response to them. He seeks to investigate our complex and contradictory relationship with the natural world.

With his main background in lens based media he has found himself more and more bewitched by the art of sound and performance. Sound can be the most direct way of engaging with a subject and makes for an enlightening and evocative medium to explore the outside world. Sound can affect our emotions immediately without thought or explanation.

As an artist he is interested in the intersection of the visual and sonic landscape.
