The subjects of my work are hugely personal to me. Each is an object that could be found at the bottom of a drawer: abandoned but well-loved, and, by the nature of its construction: it’ll exist long after we’re gone.
I find myself pondering what the digital archeologists of future civilisations will conclude about our society from the objects, and data, we leave behind.
Each of my images depicts a piece that has been altered in some way, to perhaps say even more about us as a society. Be it explicitly or in hidden messages I am fascinated by the violence we allow our children to be exposed to in computer games, right through to the politics of the time, and the rise of the tech that ultimately may destroy us. But it’s not all fun: also our humanity, our compassion, and our capacity for good.
We are a big mix of many things, and I’m fascinated with what the objects we leave behind will say about us. So, like a digital footprint I’m leaving my mark on canvas for future generations to find.
