My work is a research based practice, predominately taking the forms of installation, moving image, sound, performance, and text. I frequently generate technology within an intersect of digital and analog which is often site specific, and use artifacts and montage, that explores synesthesia with the use of audiovisual media. I investigate voice as a material entity; dissecting it as an independent object, and explore topics with relation to the body, cybernetic cycles, algorithmic processes, historicity of place, hyper-reality, Otherness, and emergent-narratives. I am continually pre-occupied in representations of “the Other” which I explore through immersive and hyper-real environments.
