The landscape affects us unconsciously. Our brain carefully records the elements of place in memory, using it to build our world and identity around us. I am drawn to the forest, to the mountains, to the sea. I feel myself soar as the larches turn yellow and the first bright green appears on the beech; in the sea and on the mountain top I feel an inner freeness.
When I need it, the landscape is there, to escape into or to call up within for strength. I am curious about my relationship to the world, about my emotional connection to its contours. What is it to be a body in space? Is my experience connected to yours?
Humanity has tried to tame so much of the wild world that I wonder if we have forgotten that we too are a part of it. Where is the rawness and spirituality of being? How can we rediscover our interconnection and let nature back in?
In my practice, I work in a range of lens-based media mixing analogue and digital, disrupting the capture or surface of the photograph, and playing with the possibilities of my visual language. I use my body to relate to the landscape; I look, create, recreate—always open to the elements of chance. I want to be able to take you along with me as I ask my many questions, creating work that stays in the back of your mind long after seeing it.
