Statement

The world can be a dizzying, confusing, uncertain and overwhelming place. Architecture and design attempt to offer order and control through their reassuring visions of how life could be. I am interested in the ambiguity of buildings and objects that do not quite meet their intended aspirations, are deemed unfit for purpose, outdated or are left to ruin.

Through sculpture, I appropriate these architectural, domestic and design failures, reworking them as a metaphor of the disparity between preconceived expectations and their shortcomings. Using everyday building processes, I often submerge and disguise found objects and materials in an attempt to conceal their failures, examining the fine line between the ideal and the uncanny.
