His installation art and projection work counterpoint place and space. He enjoys displacing people through humour or juxtaposed imagery – a preacher at an arts festival backgrounded by cows; using medical scans of cancer as images of colour and beauty, whimsical use of maps conjuring up memory, suitcases filled with objects alluding to remnants of memory.
As well as the collaborations with Anne Kwasner his projection / performance installations have selected for BEAMS Art and Light festival Chippendale 2013 + 2015.
