I use building, assembling, and prototyping to explore inner experience, kinship, queerness, and possible future forms of community.
My work takes form through objects, installations, works on paper, speculative fiction, protocols for interaction, and experimental organisation.
My recent body of small scale sculptural work, Attachment theory, uses objects and assemblage to experiment with and re-arrange representations of relatedness. In a play between objectification and subjectivity, identities shift, past narratives are suggested, and protopian future configurations emerge.
When I make large scale installations one of my objectives is to create moments of presentness in the audience, so that the space fully occupies all aspects of their experience. I often use darkness to slow people down, giving them solitude and allowing them to feel their way through the work.
Objectness is a recurring theme in my speculative fiction, where humans often find themselves turning into objects or developing obsessive relationships with the non-human. The process is porous; writing and sculpture become iterations of one another.
My practice operates in cycles of intuition, iteration and integration, feeding into new imaginings of collective futures.
