In Memoriam explores the notion of imaginative history and subjectivity in the memories of individuals.
The project considers how memories can be shaped, transformed and shared through our experiences, perceptions and interpretations, through an installation of evocative and fictitious scenarios.
The content is rooted in my interpretation of my great grandfather's memories and gathered ephemera which poses the question of the roots of my understanding of his life. Are these memories just my own fiction, or my real great granddad's memories, or simply my grandmother’s stories?
Through developing three main forms of transmitting memories, oral, written and visual, I intend to express the diverse layers of perception and interpretation.
Using a cinematographic and a literary approach, the project aims to develop this ambiguous duality of fiction vs reality – subjectivity vs objectivity.

MA Visual Communication, 2014
I am a London-based visual artist who studied graphic design at Camberwell College of Arts, and am currently studying for a Masters in Visual Communication at the Royal College of Art. I work across different disciplines and artistic sectors on projects specialising in illustration, print-making and installations, as well as publishing and graphic design work. My design practice encompasses handmade work and digital processes.
Through my work I develop the idea of metamorphosing materials, layered narratives and memories.
I am particularly interested in the shape, form and nature of mixed materials within process and time and how this language creates and explores narratives ; a language that is built up over time and which is often re-worked as a consequence of which new contexts and meanings are formed.
