Science Fiction and fantasy greatly influence my work, in particular, when considering worlding and worldbuilding. I use digital software including Cinema 4D to create simulations of imagined places taking human and world entanglement as the starting point.

Donna Haraway writes that: “SF is storytelling and fact telling, it is the patterning of possible worlds and possible times, material-semiotic worlds, gone, here and yet to come.” Haraway’s articulation of worlding and writing around entanglement ties together the key elements of my practice. I am interested in the ways in which the entanglement is visible, through mushrooms decomposing radioactive waste, footage of sharks eating internet cables that lay under the sea to the wealth of marine life that now grows on the temporary oil rigs off the coast of Santa Barbara. When looking at this messy, confusing entwinement, it evokes ideas of hybrid creatures and fictional ecosystems that would inhabit this in-between space. My recent work has combined simulations of alternate realities with influences from writers such as Anna Tsing, Ursula Le Guin and Marina Warner.

Imagination is integral to the way I make work and I am compelled by the use of imagination as a faculty for thinking.

Strange, organic forms inhabit my technicolour landscapes, which are brought to life by animation, and collaborations with sound artists who I work with regularly. The bright colours and textures I use within my work are aesthetic choices, but it also refers to the promise of new technology, gently mocking the idea that technology will save us. Advancing technology has always been central to my practice and remains a prominent element of my research, especially when considering new worlds and imagining futures.

Since graduating from Kingston University in 2014, I have exhibited at spaces such as The Barbican Centre, David Dale Gallery and at the opening of the Switch House, Tate Modern. I have established a collective, and in 2017 was accepted on to Masterclass; a professional development programme hosted by the Zabludowicz Collection. I have been commissioned by Universal Music Group, Hervisions, Art Night, Boiler Room, and most recently, Mansions of the Future based in Lincoln.
