MA work


Interventions looks at the effect of human progress and development on the environment, focusing on my local Common. Having grown up in Hayes on the edge of London and next to the Green Belt I see the value of nature, but also the demands of society. My work draws attention to this tension, exploring through site specific installation, drawings and writings how special Hayes Common is, what value it offers and how we can all help improve our local nature.
