My practice is strongly influenced by science and explores notions of identity and individuality through repetition often juxtaposing microcosim and macrocosm adjusting as if with the lens of a microscope. Through my art I investigate knowledge systems, most recently questioning ideas around authorship, authenticity and the role of the artist.
