My current research and practice consider the way we engage with and understand our experience of public space.

Rather than endlessly speeding forwards through the spaces of our super–modern1 society — transient and unaffected — we might instead strive towards a more fulfilling experience of place through taking time to slow down and notice, to question the rules at play and the means by which these are enforced.

Through a visual practice grounded in drawing I depict spaces that, while imagined, often make direct reference to my surroundings; things that seem significant. Combining such situations creates a different viewpoint from which to observe the varying elements of place that inform and influence our behaviour. In these new spaces I can question the prevalence of these components of place and their relation to individual liberty.
