“Toronto’s best new video artist. Last year’s Metronome was shockingly inspired, mixing Wittgenstein, movies, and pattern theory.  This year Cockburn continued the heady ideas and subtle performance…”     – Cameron Bailey

He has a rare literary talent which he serves up with visual élan, smart design sense and a playful philosophical project whose deeply lived roots is leavened throughout with humour.”     – Mike Hoolboom

“Watching one of Cockburn’s videos is like watching a Philip K. Dick novel stripped down to its girders: a collection of peculiar personal obsessions spun out into elliptical, witty/paranoid mini-narratives.”     – Wendy Banks

“Cockburn’s work is strange and recursive and curious and enthralling, and sometimes all at once.”     – Norman Wilner

“Cockburn ingeniously employs meta-narratives, witty sound/image juxtapositions and musical structures, appropriation and abstraction to craft engrossing and enigmatic stories for the 21st century. – Jon Davies
