My practice explores nostalgia, human’s relationship with the natural world, and the power of participation. I create ephemeral events that encourage the viewers to become part of the work. My work often materialises installations, murals, costumes and interactive sculpture, where the viewers are invited to enter an imagined reality.
I create freeing experiences where an alternate reality allows a space for play. I’m interested in breaking down traditional boundaries between spectator and creator and moving towards a collaborative practice. My practice is rooted in the notion of ‘event’, and as a result I often work closely with festivals, club nights and outdoor gatherings to create and install interactive installations and décor.
