It is part of our human condition to yearn for well-defined boundaries and clear concepts. Dirt arises as a consequence of categorisation. The British anthropologist Mary Douglas describes it as "... a by-product of a systematic ordering and classification of matter - a matter out of place". Dirt is a cohesive aspect of my practice, represented physiologically, symbolically, and in its purest form, expressed through photography, video, installation and performance. The most significant component in this is my attempt to challenge individual perceptions by generating awareness of hitherto unrecognised or overlooked elements within our domestic arena in the hope of drawing us away momentarily from all that we find familiar.
