Artist and digital media developer/designer
I work across photography, video, digital, and performance. The interests underlying all my work are the tensions between the individual and the place and circumstances they inhabit, and the human mind in conflict with itself. In visual media, I design an aesthetic representing an individual’s thought processes, using a precisely crafted audio-visual mood and rhythm to trap the audience into their subjective experience. My performance mixes popular alt-drag cabaret with live-art aesthetics to question gender identities, and portray individuals fighting restrictive social norms. I show work in exhibitions, galleries, film festivals, clubs as well as traditional performance venues.
