I work across a variety of media including moving image, photography, installation, intervention and performance.
A fascination with human behaviour is what motivates me to make art, and through this I explore various themes including culture, the self, estrangement, displacement and de-familiarisation as well as working with ideas surrounding the use of used and unused space.
Through my practice I aim to push myself beyond my physical, social and mental boundaries and my main interest is to make sense of how that impacts on people collaborating or participating in the art, whether co-creating, viewing or interacting with it. I consistently endeavour to connect with my audience on a spiritual, cerebral or physical level, to take them out of their comfort zone, as much as I push myself out of mine during the process of making the work.
My work is also often expressed in relation to the architectural, spiritual, and melodic, whether that's evident in the creative process of how a piece is made, the way its exhibited, or again, the way people interact with it.
These themes and ideas are expressed predominantly, though not exclusively, through use of digital image (video and photography), to discover new ways of representing ‘conventional’ imagery, which often results in the creation of a visual structure that emulates a musical composition. I also make use of natural and mechanical, everyday and often unnoticed found sounds, which echo the themes of my work.
I create very incidental, ‘durational’ works, often with a therapeutic, meditative or holistic aspect to it and usually exploring ideas about endurance, stamina and attention span or about bringing the mind into the present.
The use of sound and the exploration of performance interventions has become increasingly important to my work and as such, I don't package my practice as something restricted to one discipline, but perceive it as something that is boundless, regarding the creative ‘process’ as the instrumental factor in my work.
