My practice centres on playfulness - having an idea and making something, then having another idea and making something else. I enjoy functionality, creating objects fit or unfit for obscure purpose.
Since 2019 I have collaborated with artist Jess Wilson-Leigh on A Collection of (Unfinished) Shared Projects - or C(U)SP. We experiment with alternative ways to approach art making, on a project by project basis. Previously we have tried: exploring randomly generated topics, small daily tasks and a postal art exchange. C(U)SP gives us a space for collective play. Project outcomes are non-specific and non-guaranteed.
