To me making artworks means having to deal with problems of communication (even with oneself). 

How to make something readable when it comes from a place of dissolution?

How to translate a thing from one form (or lack thereof) to another?

I like things that are perceived as boring, wasteful, ‘un-valuable’.

Politics of passivity, waste, weakness, dissolution, fragmentation, repetition, translation, language, etymology

I research word etymology and how meaning is constructed in dictionaries to make work out of it.

I spend a lot of time looking at objects around.

Recently I’ve used objects directly from my studio at the RCA to make work.
