"Through site-specific environmental installations I seek to challenge the predictability of expectations & ‘cultural homogeneity’. My art practice is inspired by the complexities, equilibrium and fragility of the natural environment and by the ways in which our man-made systems work within, or in opposition to, these natural systems. The focus of my practice is the concept of transition, including notions of unpredictability, vulnerability and ephemerality. It is informed by issues relating to human ecology, cultural displacement, consumption and materialism."
