Artist Statement

My work focuses on perceptions of space, reality, and the world(s) we live in. I look for ways to enhance or distort perception, and propose alternate worlds to those one finds familiar.

I work predominantly with 3D rendered imagery and immersive technologies. I use digital tools to visualise alternate worlds and reimagine existing ones. My digital arts practice is accompanied by exploration of physical media, with particular consideration for the sensory properties of material and how they can enhance or distort experiences of space.
