Light, site and the body are the raw materials of my practice. My work spans various media including film, installation, and photography. Using projection, I challenge the relationship between the passage of light through space and the image which is latent in that light, waiting to be revealed when the light meets a surface. I am fascinated by the paradox of light as the medium of visibility which is itself invisible, and explore this by working with luminosity itself as a three-dimensional, energetic presence which approaches materiality. The embodied experience of the viewer is an essential consideration in the development of my work. The visualisation of light seeks to cause a reflexive turning back of perception upon itself, creating a heightened awareness of ones own senses.

Diverse texts inform my practice, from philosophical works by Irigaray, Merleau-Ponty and Lyotard, to mystical writings drawn from Hinduism, Buddhism and Daoism. Architectural references also play a significant role, whether as a starting point for site-specific pieces, or as influences which inform my work structurally. Many of my architectural inspirations are of a personal nature, drawing on spaces which have been inhabited by myself or by my family. Through my own experience of architectural spaces, I investigate liminality and the threshold, but also concepts of interior and exterior which surround it. This pair of binaries recur in my work as mutually exclusive and yet mutually dependent, existing only through their relationship with the other.
