Professional Statement

My practice embodies a creative relationship to space and pursues experiential and participatory narratives of place. It aims to find ways to explore spaces with a physical and human engagement and produce landscape (both rural and urban) "artworks" based on that experience. It seeks to draw from, document, reflect an experience of a particular moment of being there whilst also linking to social, political, environmental and historical contexts articulating a societal engagement with place.

My artworks or projects take many forms including, interactive sculpture, constructions, public intervention, video, photography, drawing, performance and text. Many projects engage the collaborative input and participation of others.
