I am interested in seeking out the hidden, forgotten or reimagined aspects of architectural sites to communicate a sense of the felt experience of the space, alive with human traces, narratives and histories. Inspired by experience, memory and imagination, I enrich my enquiry with participatory working and wider contextual research.
Currently focusing on the natural rhythms of light and mysteries of shadow, I am interested in what they may reveal about a space. Working with abstract forms, I engage in a repetitive, rhythmic action of drawing and examine how paper surfaces and marks interact with light, often working with video.
Recent works comprise installations that incorporate drawings, prints, light and video.
