In my art practice I’m using photographic techniques to advance my human understanding of the man-made world. Often by incorporating the in/capabilities of the medium to discover new ways of thinking and researching the subject-matter. For example, I deploy my own developed methods and counterintuitive experiments to measure artificial night lighting on transparency film or to make cellphone reception visible by using infrared film with conceptual rigour and fictional narratives. Currently, I'm interested in the relationship between assimilation light used for photosynthesis and economic profit versus ecological growth.
My bookshelf includes titles such as: Against The Anthropocene - Visual Culture and Environment Today by T.J. Demos; a collection of essays published by SonicActs: The Geologic Imagination; and my most recent
Despite my concerns about the footprint of image-making – and while I'm researching ecological alternatives, I believe that photography fulfils a critical role in witnessing and establishing our relationship to the environment and all other species with whom we share the planet.
