About
I am an interdisciplinary visual artist currently based in Melbourne, Australia. I recontextualise on hand materials, technologies and experiences in an attempt to reveal moments of play, absurdity and subversion within the quotidian.

Because I can never source nor afford to purchase enough speakers I decided to try and make some out of found, cheap, and everyday materials. The speaker in the top image started life in an old CRT television. There are so many discarded on the street! Considering the content of much of my work, it seems appropriate to also include recontextualised found objects at the install stage. 

I’ve been enjoying sewing lately so when I saw a tutorial for embroidered fabric speakers I had to try it. To my surprise I got it to work! It’s very quiet. And also very hot. It will need some revisions before I make the speaker pillows I’ve been dreaming of. 

Friday night and I am recording the sound of a tap dripping, nodding my head to the rhythm. 

Adam is now playing the recording through an amplifier. ‘It sounds fucking amazing!’ he says.

I dreamt that Marina Abramovic drew faces on the soles of both of our feet. We then lay on our backs, lifting our feet into the air and performed a puppet show detailing the difficulties of citing online sources in academic essays.

I dreamt of an imagined ex who, in the time since our split, had developed a receding hairline and a taste for smoked meats and public masturbation.
