I am interested in negotiating the complexities that exist within, around and between the gaps of an idea. Hard to define and articulate; the place of overlap, the grey area. Something fragile and hard to hold. By resisting categorization the work avoids dominant hierarchies, seen as virtual nets that restrict freedom of thought.

By researching around a specific starting point, I find what I consider to be the sediment, something fundamental yet pervasive. I look for a tension that exists between historical archive and contemporary debate and investigate this state of uncertainty. Through gathering and transforming materials, I attempt to articulate something hard to understand - to elicit a shift of perspective.

What unfolds is a speculative, iterative body of work with a nonlinear narrative, shape-shifting and adapting during installation,  responding to situated environments where the surrounding space itself has equal importance to the work. It demands an active engagement from the viewer, considering that movement can resuscitate a sensory response that perhaps has become buried beneath the surface of direct consciousness.
