Statement

As a multimedia artist, my work frequently explores diverse socio-political themes, aiming to encourage viewers or participants to critically engage with them. I utilize a wide range of mediums, including drawing, new media, animation, installation, and object making. I have developed particular interests in incorporating interactive elements in my work and blending technology with the handmade – or the digital with the material. 

In 2015 I undertook my Honours research project, I DUN GOOD. I set out to develop and discover studio methods for making interactive objects that critically engage participants, whilst uncovering uncomfortable conditions underlying protest and social action on social media. The resulting body of work and exegesis can be found on this site here.
