About my artwork
Often starting as playful experimentation my work touches upon themes of impermanence, fragility, futility, repetition, structure, pattern, scale, future, technology, architecture and the city. Digital works range from meticulous sound edits to virtual installations. Physical installations manifest themselves as precarious and ephemeral arrangements of materials such as potatoes, staples and transformer laminates. The fragile nature of these installations renders them exposed to micro-apocalyptic events such as a light breeze, a falling leaf or the furry infestation of mould.

The Art that I create is the result of experimentation and play. These experiments can involve highly repetitive and mantra-like procedures or can be simple, spontaneous responses. These experiments include dense and garishly coloured drawings, ephemeral and architectonic installations, meticulous sound edits and mythical, never-ending scenes created from looped video clips.
