About my blog

Artist & Lecturer

When I first set out, my investigation was of the city I experience everyday. I considered my own and others’ relationships to it, I explored what external factors dictated and altered that movement. Architecture being one, it can limit where we walk, so we have to adapt and invent other ways as Michel de Certeau suggested this improvisation of walking privileges, even transforms and abandons spatial elements for us.

I increasingly found myself not thinking about reality but imagining a space in my mind, beyond body or matter. A real that is not quite real, or an actual real but a real whose reality is virtual and therefore imaginary. One that is not constrained by our reality, potentially, our will, and our desire is what governs this space, our only limitation being our imagination.
