Wunderwall

Installation detail from That's just a nun with a bag of oranges.

Large in scale, one-off and site-specific, Wunderwalls comprise hundreds, if not thousands, of carefully selected and placed images taken from my archive. Photographic datasets merge with singular images documenting the residue of consumerism and juxtaposing it with poetic moments taken from daily life. Threaded through are visual ponderings on humanity, the environment, capitalism and futility.

images documenting the residue humans leave behind and the marks they make.
