My current practice is exploring, collecting & the reconstruction of forms & controlled environments within urban & rural community setting.
The reinvention of domestic, industrial materials & equipment, in the development & direction of new works. Endeavouring to develop a sense of encounter & to alter the relation between, the sense of place, installed work & the audience.
Integrating ephemeral works within natural & built environments, & allowing the community to develop a means of interaction & dialog with the work.
