Though predominantly photographic, I also draw, collage, collect, build websites and create large-scale installations. I hone in on the granular and seemingly insignificant things; the residue of consumer compulsions, odd bits of plastic and decaying organic matter to attempt to understand modern life, the purpose of futility and to learn.
Turnstile: an idiosyncratic and photographic database-driven website
Designed as a component of my PhD research Cultural Mulch, Turnstile was a major feat bringing together PHP/MySql coding, photography, writing and design to create an everchanging interface with a focus on typologies and collecting.
