I explore site in terms of the concealed, implied, absent and remote. I use a variety of media including video, drawings, photography, mapping and sound in site specific and site related projects that range significantly in scale. Giving presence to absence, I consider the way in which notions of place and ‘absent place’ can be an embodiment of identity and how this can be used in terms of ideology, romanticism, marginalisation and subversion.

My current area of focus is the tension between idealised place and embedded (hi)stories. I am intrigued by the potential of juxtaposed and suggested place and how shifts in movement, time and context can build narrative and alter perceptions of a situation. Using devices (such as layered framing and/or dual projections) to appose different contexts and create a dialogue between them, I compact time and space in projects that often manifest in a physical dualism.
