My work revolves around the following statements;
Nothing destroyed, nothing created, always becoming.
The world existed before you, it will (most likely) continue without you. You simply play with the elements that were predetermined before your arrival; you are therefore unable to 'create' anything new nor can you 'destroy' anything into finality. Everything is a process of change, adaptation and mutation. Your work will always show this; you can only play with context. (Curate)
Use your history and knowledge as a way to collate elements in powerful ways. Context is one of the most important tools we have as participants within our world. How can your work, your words, your self be located? Who came before you, who is beside you, what do you embrace, what do you reject? My creative work is heavily reliant on these contextual questions. I am a product of everything that came before me. Your 'pre-existence' should not be sacrificed in order to produce work or become 'an artist'. (Art)
Express yourself - don't repress yourself.
Work that is personally crafted has more worth to me than the production line. This relates to the importance of context. I want my work to have two interdependent qualities - to have a place within the world and to be representative of my place within the world. The two are connected via my body, my feelings, my interactions. Art, design and creative platforms offer a voice to those who feel less able to 'speak'. Use your individual voice and skills to produce something beautiful and/or true. (Writing)
Whatever you do, whatever you make, it will never be adequate. There will always be something missing, something to change. Do not be discouraged by this, embrace the incomplete world we live in and see it as a chance to develop. (Design)
I can create, design, curate, write, destroy and become. I am open to your ideas and your work prospects.
