Statement

I work across a range of media, including sculpture, textiles, performance, image manipulation and video. I'm interested in concepts surrounding identity and its relationship to the digital age, at the same time in the connection between technology and "truth", particularly the westernised idea of it. 

Through my practice, I question ideas concerning representation, appropriation and authorship. The recent incorporation of new materialities and disruptive technologies into my work presents a new set of questions concerning production, automation and processes of exchange that are currently the focus of my research.
