I am an Edinburgh-based visual artist working with audio, moving image and technology.
Much of my art practice involves modifying existing devices or equipment – such as telephones, bank cards and CCTV, to function in altered or unexpected ways. By using everyday objects I hope to raise questions about how we use devices and technology, exchange information and relate with one another.
I create installations and device art which examines themes around technology, communication, control and power. I make work exploring fundamental personal questions along with more universal themes. At a time of political and economic tension and a continually changing technological landscape, concepts and narratives are often informed by current news and media. Regularly, interactive elements invite the viewer to playfully engage with the work. The work is often whimsical and humour frequently is an integral element.
I work from a studio based at Summerhall in Edinburgh.
