My current practice employs various methods and materials in working through ideas of the archive, collecting, memory, and history, including video, letterpress, projection, sound and installation. I utilise found objects, text and stories, as a way to generate new meanings and assemblages. I spend time accessing material and taking inspiration from various archives, collections and museums. I am interested in the distinction between public and personal archives, the former taking up order and efficiency as its main principles of structuring, the latter embracing unofficial, subjective material to recall different histories and ideas.
