  • Work
  • Biography
In recent work I have been exploring the complexities of the ‘analogue book’ in abstract and developing the themes of ‘transformation’ and ‘abstraction’ of the book as an object in the built environment and the landscape.

My research is conducted and informed by using real-time scientific methods revealing ephemeral and ‘alternative truths’ about site in collaborations with other artists, chemists and movement practitioners.
