I am an artist based in London. I have an interdisciplinary practice that includes writing, video, sound, painting, object making, installation and performance.

My work addresses concepts of distance through a mapping of narratives and language systems across technology and the natural environment. I am interested in forms of storytelling as means to speculate, obfuscate and communicate histories that are subjectively as well as objectively charged. Writing and imagery often draws upon language, design and symbolic systems from a broad range of sources such as astronautics, oceanography, geology, alchemy and ideograms. I am interested how different disciplines describe the natural world and how specific and seemingly fixed systems can be subect to misdirection, disorientation and dissolution. Recent work considers the wilderness in relation to ecological change and human and non-human activity within it.

Some places I have shown include: Jerwood Visual Arts, Whitechapel Gallery, Lethaby Gallery, A.P.T., Standpoint, Fieldgate Gallery, London Print Studio and Purdy Hicks, London and Temple Bar Gallery, Dublin. Some solo shows and projects include: NADA Miami, PULSE Contemporary Art Fair New York, and Toomer Labzda gallery, New York. I have been involved in a number of collaborative projects, from playing the fife at Metaphonica, Central Saint Martins, to staging a trip to the moon at Camden Arts Centre, London. I am a member of Five Years an unfunded artists’ project where programming maintains a direct relationship to practice and part of Glap Collective, an experimental writing group. Residencies and workshops include with Signal Fire Arts, Oregon USA, 2017, Sydney College of Arts, Australia, 2011, and on the RRS Discovery OSNAP research cruise, joining oceanographers on an expedition to the sub polar North Atlantic, 2016.
