I trained as a painter and now use moving image, working with it as a painterly medium. I also work with sound, using aquatic field recordings to produce constructed sound pieces which I provisionally call sonic drawings. I am also working with augmented reality as a platform for multi-media interactions and geo narratives. Water is always present in my work, as a visual or sonic motif, as a point of reference or as raw material. I am particularly interested in site, data and sensation, and these three things drive the outcomes.
I am currently working as a commissioned artist on Daisi’s Art Machina project to develop young people’s digital arts practice. From January 2017 I am undertaking a 3 month residency in Burry Port, Carmarthenshire.
Recipient of the Bath Spa University Research Centre for Environmental Humanities inaugural PhD Studentship (2016-2019). My practice-led research asks – what are the parameters of an art practice which seeks to articulate located subjectivities that can disrupt dominant discourses surrounding climate change?
I broadcast regularly on Soundart Radio with two shows:
Artdotearth.fm – monthly broadcast broadly concerned with arts and ecologies.
Sonic Drawing – monthly broadcast exploring sonic arts and acoustic ecology.
