“Cultural memory, childhood paraphernalia and doomsday prophecy form the spine of my current research. Through selection, re-composition and redaction I boil images down and point disparate elements toward the same uneasy atmosphere. I am interested in the behaviours being repeated now, despite the warning signs of history, science and our gut feelings.”
