Statement

I am interested in connections between technology and an all too often imposed western vision of history. Through a range of media, including sculpture, ceramics, image manipulation, performance and video, I explore concepts of diasporic identity, “truth”, and their relationship to the digital age. 

The recent inclusion of new, disruptive technologies into my work, such as 3d scanning and printing, raises further questions surrounding production, automation and processes of exchange. 

Overall, I seek to question ideas and practices of representation, appropriation and authorship.
