My work incorporates a range of 2D and 3D media to explore humour, absurdity and uncanniness in life and the cognitive processes activated through creation. ‘Flowspace’ draws influence from stylized cartoons to explore ‘flow’, a psychology concept defined by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi as a mental state of operation in which a person is fully immersed in the process of activity and creation.

Alongside the drawing exercise, I explore collaborative video and sculptural work, focusing on the displacement of objects in space, uncanniness of the readymade and the absurdity of subject/object relationship.

My projects are an ongoing exploration into mental functioning, absurdity and the uncanniness of the displaced object, functioning through a wide range of mediums and installations, using space, time, duration and humour.
