About the Practice

This work is primarily in photography and performance, supported by elements of graphic design, writing and vocalisation. Many photographic projects begin as record-keeping but culminate as aesthetic/psychosocial activism. Performance art pieces have been driven by spontaneity and evolved in real-time, through interactions with the audience and environment. By functioning as portals to understanding—whether personal or relational—both documentation and abstraction help create room for the metaphysical.

Key underlying themes are the ecology and navigation of physical and psychological space, and the creation of congruent, navigable spaces within the individual or community. The human body—primary locator, receptacle and vehicle of the self—recurs in these investigations. Spatial comprehension echoes the psyche's coming into being, playing off a belief that coherence can be achieved through reciprocal manifestation.
