MA work

I explore movements and states of physical and mental being within the human body. My work unfolds gestures and outcomes of emotions that may otherwise remain hidden.

I use moving image and photography to investigate ways in which these movements and states can be captured in their most true and direct form.

I am interested in the physical dialogue between the spectator and my work; in creating one space that allows for the removal of any distance between the two. I wish for the work to be felt rather than watched.
