My work exists as an observation into ritual, algorithm, and how these can deliver us to new worlds. Often highly process driven, I have sought to turn art into practical tools for meditation. Spectators are asked to replicate a process of unreality, and through this cognitive dissonance are hurdled elsewhere.

The vulnerability achieved through play is something that I need for my practice to aim at honesty.
