My practice works across the expanded fields of print, performance, and sculpture. I am interested in how we define, occupy, and operate within space and place. I predominantly use language, both written and spoken, because it is embedded in our everyday lives. As a communication tool, language streamlines questions about space and gives form to it, whilst simultaneously distorting and disrupting it.
I adopt anthropological models of working through recording signifiers of place: street and welcome signs, mapping and historical walking tours, as well as marketing and branding strategies with wayfinding signage by creating my own forms. These adaptations visually replicate the norm but on second glance have marked differences to what is expected. Subsequently, I seek to play with people’s expectations and modes of behaviour that are associated with it. My work aims to act as a trigger to instigate conversations, helping people to move through and look at place through a new lens.
