to experience in the active sense requires that one ventures forth into the unfamiliar and
experiment with the elusive and the uncertain.

I work in an investigative way, pursuing the subject of the work at different levels; this often leads me to work across media, although my primary medium tends towards moving image.
My interests stem from living and working in a rural environment and my current research began in 2005 with the intention of investigating how and in what ways specific geographic site can be utilised as subject in moving image installation. My aim has been to achieve this through a synthesis of differing research strands, which would encompass moving image installation and theoretical, contextual and technical investigations. Within my practice, I use my lens as a broad language of gesture, which maps, color, form and movement as a way to reveal perceptual change, a phenomenological attempt at deconstructing the experience of place, not to show mimetically or critically the distribution of things in space but how experience of place may be reclaimed as encounter by the viewer.
