I am interested in slowness and slow art as a reaction to the contemporary experience of fast time. My arts practice uses film, with its time-based associations, to try to capture everyday temporal shifts, induced by physical phenomena such as a shadows, water and light. The imagery used references and contrasts subjects such as accumulating dust or the shock of spilling something to enhance moments when time appears to slow down.

I present my videos within sculptural environments, creating physically immersive slow time experiences. I am exploring the relationship between the real sculptural form and the virtual nature of the film. I am also interested in the slow states of presence and absence and how these relate to our use of technology, our bodies and how we think about what is real and what is virtual.
