ABOUT


My work explores the relationship between critical theory and multimedia experiences. With influences as diverse as Kierkegaard and Buckminster Fuller, new tensions are manufactured from both opaque and transparent textures.

What starts out as contemplation soon becomes manipulated into a carnival of lust, leaving only a sense of dread and the chance of a new beginning.

As shimmering derivatives become distorted through emergent and academic practice, the viewer is left with an insight into the edges of our era.

Now, that was written by a bot.
