I use strategies within the work to create a type of rhythm to how it is looked at or experienced. For example, using techniques such as decoration, projection, gesture and placement. I see these devices as a means of creating tensions between various objects I use so that they begin to display emotional responses to one another. For instance, a tablet computer rests on a large beanbag which is playing back a live recording of the viewer from it’s inbuilt camera. The object senses the viewer through using computer code and it places an oval over the viewer´s face so that it prompts an emotional charge in the material used.
In the same way that my assemblages articulate a chaotic position in the world, my drawings similarly start from a point of chaos. Forms begin to appear within the marks made, illustrating different thought patterns and streams of consciousness. In this respect I attempt to use absurdity as a kind of visual material. Working across drawing and object based work has allowed me to investigate my interest in the lack of meaning sometimes created when objects and forms meet. Developing this line of enquiry is important to me as I see it as a way to reconcile my interest in both.
Extending research into the subjects that are influential to my practice is something I want to pursue. Current areas of investigation for me are questions such as: What happens when technological items become part of our everyday lives? What happens to the new exchanges that are created when this interplay happens?
