My practice focuses on exploring the specifically spatial aspects of interdisciplinary processes that operate between art and architecture, to engage with the social and the aesthetic interrelations between people and their environment. My aim is to make work which communicates with people, is emotionally affecting and responds to their unique cultural and physical context. To do this I start and finish with people and their stories.
Researched in archives, revealed in conversations, uncovered in the landscape or found in the street; I am looking for the compelling tales that make us feel connected to a place, remind us of our mutual interdependence and give us hope that positive change is possible. Drawing inspiration from these rich sources I work with local people's skills, site specific materials and forms to amplify these interrelationships, to create immersive, sensuous, memorable, public installations which allow the natural environment to participate alongside the visitors, resulting in the emergence of new spatial narratives.
