On the hunt for social situations that cross between the surreal and “ordinary”. I link image, sound and video clips that I have captured from around the world. Piecing together a fictional reality, whilst connecting the disparate elements.

My focus is drawn to the meeting points at random, the idea of simultaneous possibilities co- existing allows me to explore and connect “different worlds at the same time”. The reconstruction element within my work often gives reference to the complex layers of history, of movement of people and goods, and cultural displacement. I have taken much of my inspiration for the development of my work from the Rhizome concept developed by Deleuze and Guattari. “A Rhizome has no beginning or end” I develop my research into identity through a non-starting point, pushing the Connections and multiplicities that evolve within the work.
