Touching the Surface

My work is focused on how the body, the self and the domestic environment is represented and mediated through print-based media. I'm particularly interested in using the scanner as a camera, and reprocessing analogue forms into digital. By combining various methods of printmaking in my work I seek to challenge the perceived boundaries between the material and the virtual. I'm interested in how Print can bind people and communities together through a process of visual/haptic exchange, and how creative applications of digital image-making can positively contribute to the human experience.
