My studio practice investigates institutionalised dynamics of power, control and authority – in the public urban and suburban context as well as in the museum and gallery. I am especially interested in the imbrications of systems of control and authority that end up occupying and governing these spaces.

In uncovering, cloning, and reconfiguring these by-product artefacts of technocratic power systems, I can demonstrate these power imbalances and struggles. Through specific media – installation, sculpture and sound – anti-homeless architecture – I re-make, assemble and construct surrogate urban architectural elements and furnishings. An urban vocabulary that is used through my work if you will.

I aim to create a fissure in the normative functionality of these objects and demonstrate the absurdity, gratuitousness and, often harmful nature that systems of power all frequently possess.
