In my work I explore aesthetics, tactility and sensoriality as ways of speaking;
Looking at constructed binaries, I harbour desires for translations and transformations of being.
Social skins and support structures are built by fragile bodies, joining and consolidating mass.
We Other and are Othered; who defines what is accepted as sentience?
Oppressions/ depressions/ press shape into interior & external forms;
one can yearn to transmute mundane pains.
So I find myself looking towards change- everything that grows, mutates, adapts, evolves.
