I am interested in an environmental shift in human nature; and my work looks at the movement of animate and inanimate objects through the gesture of behaviour. With specific attention to fostering environmental care, my art deals with an exploration of the Earth’s surface – unfixed topographical features and fluent spatial dynamics, envisioned as the activated spaces of landscape to be surveyed and mapped. Travelling between object and situation, expeditions form a framework for my itinerant practice of fieldwork.
I am an artist exploring physical and emotional geography, working in still and moving image and the intermedia between performance and sculpture. Base camp is the UK and I operate from field centres established in France and Spain. I undertake international environmental arts residencies, in addition to funded projects in the UK and personal research in southern Europe.
I am a Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society (with IBG) and coordinate panel presentations and workshops for the annual ‘Explore’ event. I am Founder/coordinator of the itinerant artist network TSOEG (Temporal School of Experimental Geography); and currently present a series of talks and papers on the subject of fieldwork in artistic practice to develop new research models in peripatetic practice, itinerant working, outposts and datasets.
