My practice centres around the notion of the object and the non-object, the physical and the virtual, and all the spaces in between…

Where once my role as a sculptor would have been to bring new objects into the world, now I can explore what happens when we bring non-objects into the world; or bring objects into the non-world of a virtual space? My recent work Being-in-the-Gallery is a mixed reality immersive experience, combining both virtual reality (using the HTC Vive) and physical sculptures, in an alternative imagining of the Gallery. By generating a disconnect, I seek to challenge the long-held primacy of the visual over touch and mobility in aesthetics.

This work fuses together my background in Neuroscience, with my interest in sensory perception, with my research in Phenomenology and its implications for Virtual Reality.
