People at work have always preoccupied me. I am particularly moved by the effort of people whose work goes unnoticed, work that becomes erased or undone, or work that seems out of kilter with our time. In my practice I am drawn to record this labour to see if art can inscribe value or somehow make things fairer.
I usually work with the short experimental documentary form, utilising the redemptive power of non-linear video editing in its ability to speed up, reverse, repeat and stop.
Working with and through people is a key part of my practice, I often encourage people to make a creative response to the situation in which we find ourselves, partly out of curiosity and because of the reciprocity this sets up.
Through warmly observing I consider the frailty and resilience of human endeavour.
