Biography

We inhabit two worlds in parallel. Two different universes that equally follow the laws of physics; one material, with mass and volume and the other a mathematical construct assembled from binary information. In this body of work these two worlds, the material and the digital, become a metaphor for the mind and the body, as well as for the physical and the metaphysical. What happens when these two fields, the real and the virtual, combine to create a dialectical object? This enquiry becomes a balance between the tangible and the intangible, information under different guises occupying divergent structures of space and time. Sculpture becomes a post-industrial allegory for the landscape of contemporary culture, an objective social marker, defining a space; a void between words and ideas creating a dialogue. The objects become an emblem of the relationship between the self and the world, fractured between two spaces and yet of space. A table becomes dysfunctional through digital interference, space folds in on itself paused moments before a singularity, mathematical language becomes landscape and noise becomes form.
