My practice engages fibre and installation art. Through ‘rug tufting’, my work represents doubt in the digital age. Utilising glitch art’s visual aesthetic, I portray contemporary existence regarding social-media and internet living. Pieces intend to overwhelm the senses, mirroring the feeling of doubt, through the juxtaposition of colour, phrases and form. Taking the domestic form of the rug and shifting it in presentation, the objects I make climb walls, morphing before us resembling viral/bacterial forms. This plays on the idea that doubt can be perceived as a disease that, over time, shifts and morphs to continue its hold over us.
