:: ART PRACTICE M.O ::
Forever in pursuit of truth, freedom & play
(fuelled by coffee, sarcasm and creative rebellion)
. . .
:: PHILOSOPHY ::

Artists have always been an endangered species, but recently, more aggressively so (funding/education cuts)... it's probably because art has the power to change the world. I feel privileged to make, play, experiment, self-express and communicate with others in what feels like my mother tongue. I want the next generation of artists to be able to do the same.


In some ways, art is the most sincere form of historical record-keeping that humanity has access to. As artists/creative-technologists/mischief-makers/social-scientists, we are uniquely placed to metaphorically 'poke the bear' of society via our work, inviting people to ponder our current and potential future realities.


I've been in the art space long enough to be content with what I've created (+ confident re the creative trajectory of my personal arts practice), but ain't been here long enough to be jaded beyond repair (yet). This means that I've just the right amount of "I'm mad as hell, and I’m not going to take this anymore"-ness (*imagine meme here please*) and naïveté to believe that good can prevail, and art will be the thing that connects everyone to each other and the world around us (art, not war.).

:: SOME PROJECTS THAT EPITOMISE MY PRACTICE ::

//A Walk In The Park: An experimental moving image artwork which features a winged faceless woman, a posthuman fine dining establishment, and a piano playing heart. (VERVE Poetry Festival, Flatpack Festival, LCB Depot, Ostranenie Theatre)

//Hybrid Art Journal: (experimental art zine which lived across digital, physical and virtual realms for three months in 2022) I invited 10 artists, designers and thinkers to come together and co-create a hybrid, left-field living journal.

//UDOU: 3D Metallic sculptures question the illusion of freedom and control. (ArtBasel Miami)

//The Masses: Successfully incorporated elements of poetry, mass participation, audiovisual, physical installation, and virtual installation. (BJP Edition365 Award)

//AI&I: A virtual installation which chronicles my experience with artificial intelligence.
