Concepts
My work is currently engaged in exploring how certain forms and structures begin, develop and return to their starting point. In particular I am concerned with the form and structure of ocean waves, stratas of rock and structures which straddle the disciplines of engineering and architecture.

One can walk through these pieces and in some sense they can be seen as gateways and arches,
a kind of contemporary form of the traditional folly in the landscape. They are concerned with movement and travel, with leading the viewer around them and, most importantly, being visually and therefore structurally resolved from every angle.Career path
