Recently my work investigates technology’s effect on our surroundings and reality. Through video, sound, projection and installation I aim to construct scenarios in which technology validates or disrupts reality. My work has been influenced by Jean Baudrillard and his theories of hyper-reality. This influence manifests itself in installations that both rely on and question technology, this contradiction initiates further investigation in my practice.
My work is site-specific and deals with the issue of personal space within public spaces. The medium I work in is stop-motion animation. This piece consists of a several of my drawings. When the vending machine is rotated the viewer gets an impression of the action that is occurring.
The artwork in the vending machine, is about an element of the experience of dancing and my passion for it. These shoes have been worn and moulded by my foot and danced in thoroughly. The soles of my feet have been imprinted in the shoes thus giving the vendor a part of the experience of passion I have when I dance.
This work is the result of an investigation into a newly abandoned space. These miniature photographs capture the resonance of the house which was once a family home, by tracing such things as personal choice of decor, damp empty corners and the ghostly shadows of life. I deliberately diminished the size of the photographs to mirror the diminishing existence of the house.
