My work is driven by a curiosity into the activity of matter and unseen forces in the universe. From reflecting on the origin of the myth of paradise and searching for paradise in the everyday I turned to particle physics looking for patterns and clues hidden in my environment. Responding to the approach employed by scientists as they seek to understand the mysteries of the universe and our role as individuals within it, I construct experiments to initiate artworks and open new pathways to pursue. I am also drawn to phenomena which cannot be explained in terms of materiality, such as the aura of place and agency of objects. Tracing lines of enquiry such as that from Plato’s depiction of the dodecahedron as the form that holds the stars in the heavens to current Dark Matter research I aim to connect ancient knowledge with contemporary theories. Materiality and process are integral to the expression of my ideas. A violent etch might echo unpredictability and alchemy; an endoscope down a rabbit hole might enact accessing unknown landscapes. I create immersive environments and participatory artworks as a means of encounter with the intangible, immeasurable and quantum aspects of the universe.
