Material exploration is central to my work particularly how materials interact to create a psychophysical response. I investigate the generative potential in the transformation of matter through a variety of material processes such as growing salt crystals and exploring amorphous and decomposing substances.
Metabolisation, parasites and the carcass are recurrent themes in my work as vehicles for the repeated breaking down of structures, making way for hybrid alternatives to the human and watery slippages [in]between.
