Through field research, collaborations and a deep fascination with natural and synthetic materials, I explore concepts relating to the transfiguration, the transformation and the interconnectedness of humans, animals, machines and environments. I collect materials, timelines, sounds, forms, textures, experiences and stories. I utilize 3d scanners, photogrammetry, a range of mold making techniques, field recorders and hydrophones to create immersive installations and allegorical objects.
