I Investigate how our experiences (personal/cultural) and technologies (historical/contemporary) influence our experience of memory and forgetfulness.
Media and technologies have always engaged me: my dad was an engineer and I grew up fascinted by how things worked and what that could mean for our lives. Often expressed as layered imagery, text and/or sound, new and historical materials are re-worked to create palimpsests for the viewer. Of particular interests is the relation between still and moving image and how different presentations may produce different narrative interpretations. Curarion and collanoration are important to my practice, and include Common Properties produced around the form of the Venn diagram with Jo Ray for Art, Language, Location, Cambridge and Three Little Words, using found images and text produced for The Kippenburger Challenge.
Working for many years with children's magic lantern slides, the motif of the ellipse, the intersection, the overlap, the aperature are key themes throughout my work.
