George is a multidisciplinary artist and spatial researcher. His work engages with acoustics, ecology and other-than-human accountability.
At the RCA, George assists running a Studio in the Environmental Architecture Department. He holds an MA in Research Architecture from the Centre of Research Architecture, Goldsmiths University and and a BA in Fine Art from the Glasgow School of Art.
George’s practice investigates and aims to create systems of meaning that communicate alternative forms of orientation, interconnectedness and intimacy within the context of an ecologically damaged planet.
Creating forms of generative storytelling, works act as enigmatic tools and quasi-functional environments problematising anthropocentric and late liberal capitalist structures of understanding and intuition. Ultimately its aim is to expose vulnerable crises’ of some-thing - an underlying plot, a form of devotion, an act of care or political claim – to emerge into ‘sensibility’.
