My work is concerned with the subjectivity of the perception of 'space', 'place' and 'non-place'. By considering the role and meaning of non-places, I foreground in particular an emerging understanding of such spaces as artefacts of human endeavour. They are components of the machine of modern life and the systems of modern existence, which can render the human secondary to the machine.
Videos taken on road trips, train journeys and planes capturing such non-places form the primary research. The images are distilled and fragmented. The static reflective moments captured bring focus to the passing of an instant in a fast world and the ephemeral nature of the duration of time.
The large gestural compositions depict a journey. They nod towards a place that can be familiar yet ambiguous and at times unsettling. The loci of such non-places are never specified. Rather, these are interstitial landscapes marked by human intervention. They are mundane but comfortably familiar, spaces where the human meets the natural world. These places are unpopulated but are humanised by a structure or other feature that suggests habitation.
