More about the artist...
'My work explores the notion of representation, distortion and transformation, and the transitional space between them. I create objects and visual narratives that take the audience onto a journey of rediscovering our industrial history and current post-industrial society. I am interested in the concept of machines, and energy, and art’s potential in dreaming of and hoping for a better future.I work in response to specific sites and architecture, as well as these spaces’ contextual histories. I use fictional stories, installations and films as tools to unfold the connections between the past and future possibilities, existed and added. My work employs a visually rich and captivating storytelling style, and often is developed through a number of stages and with different collaborators, including writers, artists and participants/audience, to allow materials to evolve organically.'
