An amalgamation of moving image, text and research, my practice interrogates the universally central roles of labour and language. It operates as an open and multi-faceted study that poses questions and maps associative elements to articulate both subjective ideas and objective information. Combining familiarity, alienation and humour my work aims to generate a conversational relationship with its viewer, offering unsparingly and asking to be questioned in return.
Formally my works investigate the varying forms that language can take. They appropriate different rules to create systems of communication, synthesising and contrasting textual and visual codes in order to explore, present and re-present a multitude of inferences. Readings of the archive and the constellation are integral to my practice, with each video or text observing a specific part of a much wider discussion. Information is frequently and directly translated between video, text and still image and my research, process and presentation are interchangeable.
My work is realised through an ongoing merging of the historical and the contemporary, the material and the immaterial, and the textual and the visual and at its core, my practice is a fluid and discursive curation of consistent research.
