The material nature of our being can be observed in great detail through the lens of science and technology. I am a digital artist interested in investigating this lens in two distinct areas of research.

Firstly, how presentation of data mediates our interpretation and understanding, for example, how the recording of the electrical activity of the brain has brought us closer to understanding each individual’s everyday experience. I am influenced by artists who make immersive visual work consisting of imperceptible components of nature such as Semiconductor.

Secondly, I have been exploring documentation of human experience of neurological illness through the use of animated film-making in order to depict the subjective, point of view. The rationale for this has been to investigate how animated film can be used as a platform to raise awareness and stimulate debate as demonstrated in the films Through the Hawthorn by Anna Benner and Sleeplessness by Ellie Land, which examine varying senses of reality caused by neurological illness. These films have been a significant influence in my latest work Misplaced In Space which explores an individual’s experience of Alzheimer’s disease in order to present scientific research findings in a way that mediates understanding of the illness.​
