Biography

I am a multi-disciplinary artist creating work exploring conflict, community, immigration and simulation through the skewed view of contemporary internet culture. My work can take the form of computer games, sound, video, paintings and digital objects and is often immediate and reactive.

My interest lies in the unexplored middle ground between digital and traditional arts, using historical artistic and pop culture references simultaneously. Outcomes often arrive via re-appropriation and re-imagining of found source materials such as real-life topographies and situations via various digital tools. A narrative element can be incorporated into the work, typically alluding to political and social issues in an attempt to challenge the broader society. There is often an element of humour in the work which can be used as something of a coping mechanism or suggesting a possible alternative reality.
