The core of my practice revolves around vision and visuality, both figuratively and embodied. Under the central umbrella of vision and visuality, a subset of concerns emerges within my practice, such as the photographic apparatus, mediation, surveillance and perception. Phenomenology is used as a framework for unpacking these concerns, as I am interested in our direct embodied experience of being in the world, and how visual technologies like cameras shape and alter that.
My practise is positioned in an expanded field of photography which utilises the moving image, as I find video a pertinent way to stir bodily affect within the viewer. My moving image works channel a lineage through the video structuralist movement, adding a contemporary layer of absurdity. Whilst my photographic prints, created in a darkroom, aim to counteract the speed of contemporaneity with something much slower and meditative, reflective of what I perceived to be the psychedelic experience of simply being.
