Major project:

Through my practice I question how technology has affected our perception and interaction with the world around us. I consider how image making and editing techniques affect our understanding of our environment and our own creation of imagery. And what the abundance of imagery we are subjected to everyday does to us, and how we can negotiate it. In order to question this I look at both the surface of the image and the objects conveyed through it. I enquire into the surface of the things around us and question how we define a surface, taking this further with my exploration into the creation and installation of imagery.

I strip the image down to it’s bare structures of creation by taking it through different image making techniques and ways of playing with the construction of different layers of an image. I play with the support of the image physically in the space, in order to understand how we can experience imagery differently in the flesh rather than our constant interaction with images on the screen. I try to combine these ways of working in order to create an in-between space for the viewer to be left in, moving backwards and forwards in understanding – in order to question their own positioning in the world.
