About

My research-based practice looks at the relationship between technological histories and futures, the occult, economics and the body. Working in CGI, 3D printing, moving image and drawing I use multiple visual tools to challenge the status quo; Often working with other areas of expertise such as academics, scientists, engineers, writers and designers and musicians to create metaphors, stories, and interventions in order to understand complex realities.

I am currently working on a project with King's College London's Centre for Regenerative medicine, where I am working with people who have been treated with lab grown or printed cells and the health-care professionals who performed their treatments. Using fiction as method I will interpret these realities, exploring regeneration and treatment in the digital era from multiple perspectives. By responding to a wide range of experiences I hope to challenge one's understanding of ‘alien' or ‘cyborg' bodies, to consider how these treatments shape identity and feed into a larger structure of feminist, industrial and disability politics. The project will culminate in a film, publication and symposium in 2021. 

In 2019 I graduated with MA in Fine Art Print from the Royal College of Art and as a result was awarded the Stanley Picker Tutorship 2019/20 at Kingston University, where I am teaching on BA Fine Art. 

Selected residencies and exhibitions include; The Royal Academy, South London Gallery, CGP London, London College of Fashion, Eastside Projects, The National Trust, The Library of Birmingham and Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery. My work is also held in internationally renowned collections including;  The Arts Council Collection, The V&A Museum and The Royal College of Art.
