My work is concerned with the strange entanglements of technocapital and ecological complexity. Through a research driven, interdisciplinary practice, I create multimedia installations that teeter between sculpture, digital media, painting and found situations. These installations confuse the contexts of technological culture and historical anthropology to reveal a distorted landscape at the edges of fantasy, conspiracy, and the collapse of meaning.
The work is often grotesque, overgrown and in decay, taking cues equally from RPG video games and American politics, Gothic architecture and agrochemicals. In activated sculptural work such as Doubtful Notice or An Essay Concerning Human Understanding, an alchemical union of materials joins animal bones to digital architectures and rusted steel that respond to human touch and resonate with eerie drones.
The vision presented is neither utopian nor dystopian, but reaches towards a form of absurdist generativity, drawing from the intellectual histories of vibrant materialism, critical sociology and esoteric thought. Through my work, I seek to find the paradoxical potentials contained in the media wastes of networked culture.
To me, my work is an experience of uncovering the slippage points between the natural and artificial. I hope by finding these moments, we might be able to reorient our current relationships to technology and the planet.
