In my work I examine the notion of relinquishment of personal autonomy for the security of imposed rules and regulations. I explore whether we wish to escape the confines of control structures and the rules they impose, or if we readily accept instructions and directions that afford us stability and allow us escape from thinking for ourselves, and offer freedom from ultimate responsibility for our decisions and actions. I am interested in the anxiety of the realisation of limitless possibility and freedom of choice, and the escape from the weight of responsibility to make decisions through following the dictates and permissions of others. My work often incorporates and subverts the forms of standard rules and instructions we encounter regularly and explores the apparent need for instructions to dictate our daily existence.
