"We live in a world where there is more and more information, and less and less meaning" Jean Baudrillard, Simulacra and Simulation, 1981. My practice explores concepts regarding humanity's relationship with its surroundings. As well as physical juxtapositions found in both the wilderness and our built environments, I also study cultural and social surroundings and how all of these factors can interfere with one another. I am often concerned with the concept of the popular cultural experience in these environments. My most current piece of work deals with the abundance of influential language and imagery in our built environments. Advertising immerses humanity into a consumerist culture, blurring lines between information, meaning and significance whilst also creating distorted, often materialistic, values.
