My practice is conceptual in orientation and focus on myths and structures within the everyday urban landscape. The stories deal with objects and characters that are in a state of transformation and bring to fore the paradox of self and other, the body and the institution, freedom and constraint.

I continuously investigate how objects act, how they alter with time and change depending on context and presentation. I use various time based mediums to passively observe and actively rearrange and use installations to amplify and subvert ideas of form, display, value and visibility.

Whether installed in a public space or in the gallery the work relate and subtly engages with the architecture and the context. As site specific interventions they function at the edge of awareness, implicitly questioning the scope of perception.
