Biography

In a world of constant change and uncertainty, when there is no true, fixed narrative or self to find, how can we know who we are and what our place in the world is? My interest is in examining universal intangible experiences that connect us. We are all affected by a changing natural and social world, forces beyond our control which invisibly affect us as physical sensations, phenomena, feelings, memories and narratives. My work explores how interactions between nature and culture affect us over time by examining the intangible qualities of change found occurring in the mundane and everyday in a variety of places and spaces. I examine the constant interplay of sensory interactions; the intangible, ephemeral sensations and feelings that we experience in mind and body. How do changing experiences affect who we are? Curiosity and chance create images, videos and installations of materiality, mystery and illumination. My current MA work explores the displacement of a Farm in East Devon, soon to be developed as Cranbrook, a new town of 5000 homes.
