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 the effect that 'The Digital' has on human rhythms and attentions. I focus upon the voice, on the multitude, on the mantra and on excessive repetition. The work manifests as theatrical video and sound installations, performances and hybrid texts. These often explore negative states and instances of melancholy limbo.   

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 TEXSTpress, who publish conceptual writing and artist books. 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).
