I make work out of being restless with the world, and to defend myself from normality


Current work concerns the elusive status of objects and thingness, through an indexical link to the dual conditioning agents of making and materiality. My work has slipped between video, photography, installation and sculpture – originating from restlessness with the world that defines over 20 years of making [mistakes]. Image – Dead Bells, 2014

I see the pedagogic role as accepting responsibility for creating & adapting student-focussed learning environments. A practice in its formative stage of development is potentially vulnerable, being critically fluid and prone to fantastic uncertainties. This requires the teaching to be equally adaptive and resonant to multiple needs and demands. Students should be challenged and supported through the process of defining their own research activities and by discovering suitable equivalences within a culture of research-informed teaching.
