I am an artist currently based in Margate, UK.  I work with moving image, sound, collaborative workshops and exchange, photography, writing and performance .  I am continually thinking about how our condition (one of creeping fascism, neoliberalism, environmental toxicity, accelerating time) affects us, and where are the holes / spaces that allow us to resist or find space for new realities to play out. I am interested in utlising different kinds of knowledges, or cross pollinating, to try to find new spaces of resistance.. I am interested in the affect of our lived environments, architecture & landscapes & the politics of mental health-- How we can resist the hegemonic structures that we live by- I am interested in systems of time & power - Im interested in feminist/queer temporalities, I am seeking time-shifting as protest.  Over the past year Ive been thinking through sound as I suppose a coping mechanism for this condition. Ive been thinking about the potential of sound in time-traveling, time-shifting. What happens when we think through deep time, geological time, embodied time? maybe we can think about the phsyicality of our surroundings as holding the answers. 

 Some of my interests are 
protest / (spaces of) resistance / time/time travel / landscape / cosmos/ moon / ways of living  / work (labour) / listening / mental health/ dancefloors / trash / power / techno / dancing / coping mechanisms / DYS(functionality) / neurodiversity / maintenance/ nightlife / class & in/equality
