Uncovering Digital Damages

Contemporary Artist

Art offers the privilege of choosing how to show up in a world intent on boxing us into neat categories.My practice revolves around The 'techvolution' of man - how our relationship with the internet, tech and modernity changes us.
I call it "Digital Damages".
I'm a contemporary artist interested in sound, installations, fabric and performance. My vision is to create moments of stillness, reflection and commentary around our digital-first lives.

Global Residency

The 2022 UNIDEE Residency in ItalyIn September 2022 I had the pleasure of attending the UNIDEE Residency, courtesy of the ArtXchange program funded by the European Commission.The residency was geared around research on art as a tool for social change, about becoming "ARTIVATORS." We held great conversations with artists and curators from Italy and visited the incredible 2022 Venice Biennale.

Found Objects Installation

I am not an Actor (2022)The photo above is from my work in 2022. 'I am not an actor' explores how we change when we engage in digital spaces.The accidentally intentional self-evolution in the internet culture.The work includes two pieces showcased at an open studio session during a month-long residency at Cittadellarte – Fondazione Pistoletto in Italy.The first piece was a short silent film & installation titled Silence on Set. An exploration of the normalised performative relationship with our digital presence.The second piece was the performance, What's on your mind, that explored the invisible and yet potent influence that our social media timelines inflict on us.
