I am interested in fragility, the mobility of material and an environmental shift in human nature. Using a trans-media approach, I investigate earth systems, in particular the movement and behaviour of animate and inanimate objects. Through experiential and embodied fieldwork methods I monitor erratic changes in landscape. Against a pervasive anthropocentric view, my work probes collapsing structures and systems in nature contributing to a wider discussion on instability and environmental change. I explore how slow capture in an age of acceleration can influence image/object making as a form of material transformation and transportation.
