Major project:

This is not a survey of 24 pools in London

As I change a cleaner is sweeping the water out of the showers, and into the drains that criss cross the floor of the changing rooms. I hop around to avoid it, but I still get splashed by little waves of the murky, foaming water that sloshes over my feet.


The lifeguard blows the whistle and we all get out of the pool, standing around half naked and dripping onto the tiles. He grabs a net and fishes around in the water until he brings up a plaster. We all dive back in.


  • I am a research-led artist interested in reinterpreting the ways in which places and objects can influence our relationship with the world around us. My background in ceramic design has given me a material-based perspective on the behaviours and ephemera that construct everyday life.
