'My practice is concerned with the shift in experience of my environment, through the accelerating transformation of images in our post-digital contemporary society. Photographs which once existed as limited physical artefacts in the real world, have become proliferations of invisible information and code. I use time-based media with analogue processes as a way of both recording and examining anxiety over time and technologies themselves, whilst exploring the material condition of images, processes and how this affects visual perception. In moments of heightened awareness slices of nature are hastily captured, not as a specific subject for study but as a neutral space to execute investigations. Weaving between digital, intaglio, photographic and hand-cutting processes, the work is underpinned by a desire to slow down and be present; synchronise drawing with breath and forensically examine a reproduced surface. Through the use of the hand and simple tools, imperfections transcribe an index of time and allocate an individual identity to every mark, which function as meta-data within the image's body. The fluctuations and dissolve from minute detail to over-all figuration, invite the viewer to reflect on the experience of active and dynamic seeing, as they motion forwards and backwards to experience the work.'
