My work frequently merges personal research with collaborations from various cultures, geographies and histories. Its primary focus is on the new societal condition of network culture and its effect upon relationships, conflicts and the identification of 'the Other'.
I am particularly interested in the pervasiveness of photography within the network and the notions of distance and apathy the constant bombardment of images often induces in the spectator. My practice seeks to question this position of passivity through the manipulation of familiar devices and methods of communicating and through appropriating narratives through multiple voices.
These ideas are explored through the mediums of installation, video, sound, photography and performance. They are also supported by a theoretical study of photography with relation to political theory and psychoanalysis.
In 2013 I will begin research at the Royal College of Art on 'The Society of the Interactive Spectacle.'
