Artist's statement

My work seeks to explore this liminal space between the nature of what is known or expected and what is actually seen; exploring this paradoxical expectation of a photograph or moving image to represent a location and time in the world - but which instead provides an abstract visual field that cannot be understood with our existing knowledge of the world from which it is derived.

In this state of dislocation, the viewer might consider other possible meanings from the fragmented elements presented to them and become aware of how their perception engages with the visual field: seeing in an unconditioned way and perhaps extend their unconditioned gaze to the people and the world around them.
