My practice encompasses science, nature, culture and personal narrative, and the manipulation of physical materials as well as animation, video, light, technology, and sound. I frequently investigate themes around physical and learned forms of perception while critiquing anthropocentric relations to the more-than-human world. Often site specific and makeshift, my work retains a fragility and transparency that leads the viewer into acknowledging their coexistence in a space, invoking a sense of instability and transience within human ecologies. With an impulse to explore and manipulate a wide variety of materials and research processes, past projects have ranged from employing weather data to create responsive multi-media installations, harnessing the sun’s heat to melt metals, attempting more-than-human perspectives via sexting, and casting off on the Tasman sea in a handmade boat.
