Cocoy Lumbao has been using video to explore time-based art since his days as a student under the Film and Audiovisual Communication program of the University of the Philippines in Diliman, Quezon City. From experimental narratives, his works have then evolved into more gallery-based works from the time he graduated in 2002. Since then, his video, which are done in both single-channel and installation pieces, have been shown in local and international galleries and video festivals such as the travelling show Move on Asia of Loop Gallery in Korea, Futura Manila in Osage Gallery in Hong Kong, and has been included in the Museum of Contemporary Art and Design in St. Benilde's recent exhibition of international video artists, The Surface of the World.
