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 other 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.
