A Lone Rice Krispie, Cleaner Required! 2012
I like to explore a range of processes in my work, from digital to the more traditional. I am usually led by the theme of the work and finding the best way of conveying the points I want to make or the questions I want to ask. Digital images, animation, sound and film are easily accessible and are quick to share. I enjoy having the ability to manipulate and control; to create illusion and drama and yet at the same time, the format also allows the capturing of honest, naked moments.
I also feel the need to take a breath from the faster pace of modern technology and ground myself in more traditional, organic processes. I enjoy the physicality of moulding and forming, building and shaping. Whether it’s making paper, upholstering furniture, constructing Withy sculptures, painting or land art, there is huge satisfaction in being able to use materials that are malleable and processes that are sensorial. It can be a whole-body experience for me and often the process itself is as important as the final piece.
