Through the process of working, I perform and display personal experience in relation to broader ideas and events. I make videos, objects, installations and excursions that explore histories of territory and concepts of nature. In the studio, I begin with a number of questions and a desire to enact and to gain knowledge from specific processes: re-iteration, re-use, and layering of information. The resulting works draw on the open-endedness of the out-take and the episode, rather than the conclusiveness of a culminating event.
