My practice typically involves the creation of installations using video projected through (etched) glass panels.

 

My current work focuses on the visual exploration of broken/ fractured narratives, based on extensive archival research and location filming.



The multi layering of image and text reflects ideas of conflicted, fragmentary memory and is often based on hidden or obscured histories.

It has previously been inspired by histories of illegitimacy, emigration and experiences of the workhouse. It has also sometimes been based on personal ancestral history.My current project was inspired by the discovery of a birth ancestor who sailed to India as an apprentice with the East India Company.
