ABOUT


I am a London born artist, writer and researcher living and working in Bergen, Norway.

My practice explores spaces of discomfort and latent panic within digital culture. I am seeking an emotional, feeling response to issues of time scarcity, displaced presence, increasing speed and fragmented attention.

My work often explores negative states, detailing how the emotional impacts of digital culture are manifested through language. Working across video installation, sound, writing and performance, I elaborate on the effect that 'The Digital' has on human rhythms and attentions. Underlying this is a critique of neoliberal narratives of productivity and self-improvement.

The works are predominantly text-based, focusing upon the act of reading itself. Everyday poetics are explored through a polyphony of voices divulging divergent narratives, whilst shifting perceptions of time are communicated through fluctuations in the speed of information transfer. Textual information overload is a recurrent methodology, as well as the use of reconfigured texts and narratives.

Alongside my practice, I co-run the Bergen based publishing press TEXST, who publish conceptual writing and poetic texts. I am also a visiting tutor at The Art Academy, University of Bergen and Bergen School of Architecture, and work as mediator with Lydgalleriet (The Sound Gallery).
