I make research and site responsive, land art interventions, sculpture, print and film often using carbonised materials.
The production of biochar is often the central process in my projects. Biochar is a form of charcoal that has multiple applications in agriculture and environmental conservation, archaeology, technology and much more. Environmentally It can be used to improve soil health and sequester carbon. This black gold that is key to life on earth is central in my work because of its ability to making the fleeting nature of existence palpable.
Using reverential ecology I try to shift the carbon paradigm by cultivating sacred and healing carbon connections. I create spaces and actions where natural and social materiality has intrinsic value beyond the power relationship between human and resource. I’m interested in the entwined themes of ecological health and mental wellbeing and how artists deal with ecological and personal grief through embodied practice.
