My practice is concerned with animal and plant behaviours, subjectivity in non-human species, interspecies communication and relationships, ecology, landscape, and place as subjective/embodied experience. We are all interconnected and interdependent.
I work with still and moving image, with and without cameras, sometimes installation.
