Crystalline

I am a Visual artist working in the medium of paint, film and sound. I am interested in the changeable nature of landmass, historical events and their interconnection to time. Many of my works seek to merge the poetic and the scientific to delve into a field that’s unknown to me. My current project ‘Crystalline,’ arises out of my ongoing inquiry into how humanity has become the dominant force of change on the planet. Positioning the work within geological history, this project explores our understanding of time and our relationship with a continually changing environment.
