My work aims to investigate the version of reality being promoted by contemporary consumer capitalism, through an exploration of our relationship with materials, technology and each other.
Have we fully considered the cultural, social and environmental impacts of the push for new products, services and subsequent rapid technological change? Does capitalism have the capacity to enhance our lives and bring new communities together, or through globalisation, pull the old ones apart?
Physicality and collaboration play a large part in my work. I aim to utilise the senses to provide a space that both challenges and enables a rethinking of entrenched beliefs and patterns of thought and behaviour; a space that connects to and has the potential for creating new narratives. I intend to guide a process; for the work to become a thoughtful meditation.
The projects differ in subject matter, however they share common ground; the intent to explore novel ways of forging new and more hopeful narratives for a more humane and sustainable future
