Living and working on Gadigal and Darug Land.

Working within a multidisciplinary practice of video, sound, photography and installation. Repetition, and replication of imagery, forms, sounds and motifs are harnessed to explore how meaning moves through, and translates between forms, signifying time, connection and transformation.
