Rooted in ideas of person and place, works address how memory and imagination are implicated in the experience of the present. Exploring the sculptural dimensions of light/image as modes for different perceptual experiences, works operate outside traditional cinematic formats, producing luminous objects of colour and light.

I’m interested in the colours and textures of everyday life and the ways sculptural light/image forms may animate spatial and psychological experience. Informed by psychogeographic and psychoanalytic perspectives, current works are inspired by the urban and domestic realms, addressing their affective intensities. Intuitively capturing quotidian scenes, I edit and reassemble still/moving images to produce new ways of seeing and experiencing the mundane.

Operating at the intersection of the digital/material works harness projected moving image with transparent/reflective media. Employing interruptive surfaces and angles of incidence to amplify image fields, each iteration becomes a new encounter with the forms of the everyday.
