My practice is concerned with ideas of embodiment, desire and identity. This is explored via a negotiation of inside and outside articulated through ideas of ingestion and modes of cooking and eating. Modifying cutlery and other eating artefacts though making casts of my own body-such as the inside of my mouth, or adding bodily elements such as teeth, the work looks to explore the space of becoming that rests between disgust and delight. I work with a variety of materials, such as found objects and edible materials its presentation ranges from object, video and performance.

I am using STEAMhouse to prototype new, performative and sculptural objects using technology to play with scale and display. I will test new work and experiment with new materials.
