As a photographer and videographer, my practice combines still and moving image making. Drawing on the natural world, mythology, iconography, psychoanalytic discourse, and gender politics, my work reframes and replaces familiar and conventional concepts or narratives, in order to reveal their qualities and their limits. Using the parameters of the constructed image, I hope to convey the contrivances embedded in our social realities. An environmental approach is essential to my work, and has become a large component of my degree show collection: centralising Gaia, the death process, and the life cycles of the Earth.
