The Silk Road
My track 'The Silk Road' is a long track based on mood and texture, as with a lot of my musical output its built up by layering the sounds, building up sound as if paint on a canvas. But this track I didn't want to make too dense, I wanted to leave spaces here for the sounds to breath and drift. I...

I'm going to quote Adam Riches from his work 'Trophies' as he sums up my thoughts exactly - "Im interested in the idea that we've become desensitised to images of death. How ever I do believe that our level of desensitisation differs, depending on who the bodies belong to" This work...

Speaking Silence
This film is a very personal investigation of the mental health problems that I developed when dealing with physical disability. The imagery expresses more than I ever could in words about the torment of being trapped in a body that is effectively a prison, enforcing an isolation that was an...

Plants and People
Inspired by the idea of personal human development featured in "Grow", I have considered another type of growth that can be seen in the world around us: the growth of plants and nature. "Plants and People" compares these two different, yet very similar, types of growth.

The sound of fury
The sound of fury depicts the current political state, how it is fragmented, and how the media influences us to think a certain way, manipulating the truth.

The Kiss
The image of Karis Lambert, Transfiguration and the image of T.M.A. Disconnected connections inspired me, The movement of the figures in both images are superb. For this image of kissing people I used intentional camera movement (ICM).

My Body My Rules
I love the way T.M.A. has taken Karis' 'Transfiguration' piece to layer and distort her original manipulation. The implied conflict of change noted in T.M.A.'s description is something that also struck a cord with me. To explore this idea of a change or many changes in appearance as an individual i...

Aim for perfection and destroy yourself getting there -- Frederics piece inspired me to try something rougher, and try some different materials than I usually use. The outcome was, at the very least, interesting.

On The Inside
We get told so often that beauty is on the inside, and then the world does it's best to remind us that it's on the outside. It's enough to tear you apart.

I was inspired by the digital image which game me a sense of dynamic and direction and that's why I responded to it with a picture of my performance Diagramer, where I perform the Kineastesia of the lines and traslate their motion in my own body.

The Revolution
I wanted to connect to mushrooms dance because with this work I was insspied by nature, although the action is about protection from social injustice. For this reason I made this Umbrella dress composed of 18 Automatic opening umbrellas.

Enhanced photography
This is an old picture I made near the Notre Dame, Paris. I like street photography of other artist, but not made by me. That is why I use ICM (Intentional Camera Movement) 😉 With PS CC I made the negative image!

In Memoriam
"Lost and Found" inspired me to think of the people we love, who eventually depart this life. We feel like we've lost them. "In Memoriam" considers the memory of these lost loved ones, along with the hope that in some way, shape or form, we may be reunited in death. What would...

New Hope
Using Monique de Brock-Bol's original photograph 5 times allows me to create a new piece of work by experimenting with transparency. Using the layers to create a new perspective of the trees and adding in some found gestural markings which reminded me of the rings of a tree when its cut down.

Return drawing
I see this piece as an embodiment of all new possibilities and chances offered to us in our lives. Each line represents a new beginning which is a sine qua non of an ending too. I tried to capture and record the minute manifestations of movement in the train on my way to London and back. I had in...

Rocks Before Time includes the rocks of a Cornwall beach. These rocks make me think of being blocked off from achieving our goals by physical obstacles in life (in this case, rocks), so I started to think of barriers which stand in our way in a metaphorical sense. This is what inspired The...
