Statement:

I create sculpture, sound and video installations, immersing people in an experience that transforms their sensory awareness. These participatory encounters create a moment where a synaptic shift in attitude is possible and new neural connections can be made.

I explore how individual psychology and pathology is embedded and mirrored in society, in an attempt to make sense of the world we live in and to stimulate conversation for change. I ask when & where are the borders between terror, abuse & negligence blurred & crossed?
