Art Blog

While I’ve been in England I’ve set up a Tumblr to collect all of my research and studio images for a project I’ve been working on this year.

You can have a look here!


Climbable Ideas
This ongoing project is an exploration around the role of architectural structures and public artworks in shaping our interactions with the city. Through this lens I am investigating the playground as a site evocative of risk-taking, bravery, elation & imagination.

Primarily through sculpture and image making I am working on a series of whimsical play structures. I am interested in child development through play, but also the broader possibilities of playful cities and spaces. I am currently researching community orientated processes and am working towards an exhibition of play sculptures and related studies.
