“We are torn between nostalgia for the familiar and an urge for the foreign and strange.” Carson McCullers

Notions explored in my work revolve around the moments of loss and gain in translation through unearthing of a shared language. Utilising a combination of photography, moving image, text and print, my work explores ideas particularly involved in contrasting experience of cultures from ‘here’ and ‘there’. Investigating the process of finding a way of communicating through a visual dialogue opposed to spoken word. Representations and juxtapositions of land, sky and water are used as metaphors for separating yet also connecting elements between two diverse places.
