My work explores mistakes, as well as the black holes in history. I envision history not as a map, or even a grand narrative but as ideas cut short. Forgotten strands of time ready and waiting to be picked up and made into string figures. Using moving image, drawing and narrative devices, I aim to transport viewers to uncomfortable places that sit between reality and invention. I pull from absurd historical anecdotes, serving them up as antidotes to our present-day malaise. 

I am currently studying on the Moving Image- Contemporary Art Practice MA programme at the Royal College of Art in London.
