My work examines binary relationships, particularly the relationship withourselves and the space(s), both mental and physical we inhabit. This often done by the creation of multiples of myself in photographic images, but also incorporates improvisational performance, choreography and stage in an attempt to blur the line between virtual and actual.
 
I have been fascinated with a sense of duality and mirroring, particularly with myself. Previously, I have been the subject and object, performer and director.
I have begun to shift my attentions on to the role of the audience and invite them into the process, with distortions. I want to flip the traditional relationship between artwork an audience and transform the spectator into an unintentional performer.
