Modern Nature

Over the last two years I have evolved a new set of interests in ideas of the Anthropocene, or proposition that that the impact of humanity upon the Earth’s ecosystems has triggered a new terrestrial epoch; a concept which in turn challenges our understanding of human / non-human, nature / culture relations.

I am interested in exploring new understandings of global warming, financial crises, geopolitical instabilities and ‘natural disasters' within a context of changing environmental relations, engaging “the vitality, willfulness and recalcitrance possessed by nonhuman entities and forces” Jane Bennett, "The Force of Things: Steps Toward an Ecology of Matter" in: Political Theory (2004)

That Oceanic Feeling  John Hansard Gallery - Southampton - 28th Aug - 13th October 2012

The exhibition investigated our relationship to the deep sea - the most remote and inaccessible environment on the planet, combining new and recent works made whilst working alongside geoscientists at the National Oceanography Centre, Southampton, asking what it might mean to look into this otherwise dark space.

The Submersion Series

the submersion series is a series of works related to swimming pools that I have been working on for a number of years. I am especially interested in the play of safety and danger with which they are charged.

Rather than in social histories of swimming, public health or leisure, I am drawn to the spatial and symbolic properties of pools and the psychological resonances to which these give rise.
