Within my work I explore themes of time, labour, and nostalgia, as well as, methods of production and the impact they have on the outcome. I push the limits of various materials while exploring their characteristics; from duct and masking tape, to VHS, cable, and rope. Some of these materials are found in a redundant and forgotten state, they are then retold in a new sense of form and recognition. The main method I use is knitting in its most traditional form, with the use of just two knitting needles. In some instances, the work will be restaged at various points of making, allowing it to be viewed in a setting that is different from the studio. This allows me to experiment with staging, lighting and sometimes projection.
