With a background in Biochemistry and English literature, my creative research and practice explores cultural and environmental narratives. In particular, I am interested in the relationship between humans, the natural environment and technology. My work probes whether technology – as an extension of human identity – has the capacity to enhance an individual’s emotional connection and identification with the natural world. Can this, in turn, promote pro-environmental attitudes and sustainable actions? Combining experimental methodology, scientific research and cultural philosophies with mediums such as participative performance, organic materials, site-specific sculpture and new technologies, I investigate the dualities present in both human identity and the natural world.
