My practice makes reference to engineering advancements and mechanical inventions from the 18th and 19th centuries, when a yearning for scientific discovery and a curiosity about the world helped fuel and justify colonial expansion.

This period was inextricably linked to new ways of seeing, attempts to control the seas and the 24 hour clock replacing the sun as a marker of time.

Imagining myself as a cinema pioneer I explore the interplay between the moving and the still, creating work that sits between the pre-cinematic and the digital.  

My work although often playful, requests the viewer to look closely between the gaps.
