Robert Hamilton has worked predominantly in the areas of video and animation. He shoots images from his immediate community, re-organizes the images, and creates a reconstituted version of realism and authenticity. Many of his concerns have grown from the use of the digital medium itself. His principal research includes the exploration of time-lapse documentary photography with consumer quality equipment that result in single-monitor and installation video art works. He lives in Hamilton, Ontario and teaches at McMaster University.
