Statement

Using simple physical strategies my sculpture and installation-based works explore the complex and troubled relationship that exists between the natural and constructed worlds which we inhabit.  Through the creation of models, often with a kinetic component, I am able to approach large global issues in a manageable and playful way.  Recent work has continued to use models, incorporating live-feed video to create disjuncture between  the transmitted images and the source constructions. The first pieces in this  body of work often referenced particular movies, simultaneously paying homage while deconstructing the art of film-making.  In current work, I have moved away from narrative,  focusing more on the disjuncture between the object and the projected image, by increasing scale differences and through considerations of context and site.
