welcome to my page :) I’m a Fine Art student currently studying at Central Saint Martins. I’m based in both Newcastle and London.
My work attempts to de-anthropomorphise technology, to reveal its spirit. I draw inspiration from spiritual, surrealist painters such as; Hilma af Klint and Leonara Carrington. I’m also inspired by the CGI/VFX used in Blade Runner and the animation in Ghost in the Shell (1995).My projects are given life using noise, montage and mirroring: segments are chopped up, duplicated, slowed down and sped up to envision what artificial intelligence[s]/organisms might look like. In my creations, everything is in conversation! Machinic artefacts are constantly morphing, each animation bleeding into the next. My projection installations showcase moments when luminous patterns dance through space/time in ways that deceive human perception.
