Early career

My work is concerned with how current technology, in particular the internet and social media, shapes and communicates identity. Primarily, I am using the framework of frequently used and fashionable online applications that have audiences around the world. I use technologies such as smartphones, scanning, photography, animation, video, digital manipulation and drawing. Important to my creative process is my personal history, which influences how I behave online with friends and family. I grew up in a post colonial South Africa with British parents of mixed faiths at the time of pre and post apartheid. Other practice that informs my work include drawings that I make on smartphones, collections of random searches from Google, animations made on iPhone and iPad and drawings of people from appropriated images online. read full statement
