"To entwine body, space and time, I use processes that are characteristically slow and laboursome to facilitate a connection with a place, real or imagined. Consequently, the making becomes an embodied action that enables acts of remembrance and erasure through additive processes of wrapping, casting, imprinting, listening, capturing and collecting. In doing so, I transform the familiar to present ethereal fragments evocative of the corporeal, where a pervasive absence lingers amongst residual traces. Built structures and objects are used to materialise and preserve time through tangible surfaces that make visible the transient body. Space, therefore, functions as a palimpsest and conduit for the human experience that retains vestiges of the past which I seek to document, record and protect."
