I am particularly fascinated with exploring our place in the world, the fragility of life and death and the precariousness of our existence, using history and historical research as a basis for my work.

Forensic anthropology and it’s use to determine individuality is a continuing theme. It’s use in Bosnia as a tool to discover identities within mass graves is a current research project.

Katie currently works in a variety of media to create sculptural installations that explore the interface between materiality and memory. She is interested in extending and exploring ideas of how we are remembered beyond death by means of our possessions as well as the conceptual and emotional content of objects.
