My creative practice often explores transitional experiences of people and places, from the changes in our physical environment to the shifting identities, belonging, family and memory. I think of myself as an artist and photographer and I tend to experiment with different media and approaches. I enjoy combining text and images to create layers and meanings. Recently, I have been experimenting with sound recording, video, pinhole photography and alternative photographic processes, such as lumen, chlorophyll and plant-based processes. Multi-sensory experiences and embodied practice have an important place in my creative process.
I am currently making work about the Cold War, memories and bunkers. I am looking for connections that reach beyond the personal and help to examine what the Cold War personal and collective legacy might mean to us today. In 2020, I became an artist in residence at the Kelvedon Hatch nuclear bunker and I use my visits to the bunker to study the archive and experiment with sound, video and photography.
