I am interested in sites where continual shifts can be observed, places that are not fixed or static, but fluid, porous and in constant material exchange. In these spaces, through movement of water and the residues and detritus washed ashore, I find a tangle of information meshed together into a fabric that is everything we are - material and immaterial, near and far, organic and synthetic, stable and spiralling out of control.
