I create immersive experiences using light and sound. I am interested in how we construct culture and reality through our experiences. Inspired by phenomenology and structuralism, my work aims to situate audiences in unfamiliar environments to challenge physical and ideological perspectives.

Over the course of my artistic career I have engaged in numerous exhibitions and projects, acting as Artist, Curator and Project Manager.
