This page sets out a virtual display of my graduation show, especially for those who could not attend the event in person. I had two pieces in the show and from here you can get to see photographs, artifacts and videos from the show. My two pieces are "The Devil's Porridge" and "For the motorway people who have forgotten how to stop and stare". See below for links to the individual pages for each piece. Both of my show pieces reflect my interest in psychogeography but take differing approaches.
This piece on show at the Art Academy 2020 Graduation show responds to my walk through a techno-fossil landscape in Uplees, North Kent. In this piece my aim was to produce a visual representation of my practice. The Devil's Porridge comprises several installation artifacts: a forensic “map” on cotton fabric, photography, accident report, gunpowder barrel, wooden table
Maximum dimensions: 120 cm by 78 cm

For this piece I have created an audio and visual installation which reflects on the “overlooked” status of a lovely brutalist footbridge over the M11 in Essex. It is an installation into which a two channel video is projected.
