Broadly the works on these web pages interweave literature, philosophy and science. What pervades the art works is a struggle to understand consciousness, the mediums that we invent and the dubious conventions we live by (evoked and supported by our technological prosthetics). There is a sense of melancholy that seems to me to be imbued in the nature of these technologies, a longing that can not be fulfilled, a fear, that even in breath-taking beauty, captured in an instant, there is a repressed aching for what an image lacks both in terms of presence and fulfilment.
 
This line between the physical world and the mind - or the immediacy of an artwork to communicate through its physical realisation and it's residual conceptual framing saturates my works. The balance pivots on this point of inside and outside.
 
The narratives are founded on biographical fragments which deal with human themes of aging, love, psychosis, longing, cults and beliefs, gender and loss and larger historical narratives of colonialism and its legacy. Noted in Thames and Hudson's book Sixty Innovators Shaping Our Futures the form and content of my work consistently shape each other often with distinct processes and specific technical installations that have not been seen before in their particular configuration.
