I am currently situated in the Seto Inland Sea, Japan. Living in a traditional 100 year old wooden Japanese house, that I am slowly renovating, on an island, surrounded by a calm body of water. So naturally, I am influenced by my surroundings. Rather than being defined by a particular medium, I utilise resources that are freely available and contain a sense of value. In the process, I am considering the Japanese notion of ‘mono no aware’ or ‘the pathos of things’. Ultimately, my work is contemplative, I am forming arrangements (of islands; islands within islands) and reflecting on our human condition through the actions of salvaging, rearranging and reconsidering.
