Prints drift across the boundaries of 2D and 3D. Stretched and sucked across an interior landscape, they hint at the familiar but are not entirely recognisable. Chairs have grown dysfunctional, with insect legs and foxes heads emerging from an impossibly furry plastic. Unexpected surfaces and prints consume the space around them.
