MA work

In my practice I am using conversation, video and performative presentations to investigate a subjectivity that unfolds between authenticity and fictional constructs.

I specifically look at different possibilities for the imagination to transform the perceived reality of an individual or group.

I am investigating the possibility of immersion and ecstatic experience in contemporary spaces, and looking at how inner, emotive visions can be linked to the visual language of abstraction in art.
