I create immersive and democratic experiences for participants, drawing from creating work in radio, poetry, Installation, video and online. My current work uses the online space for transmedia storytelling, digital poetry and augmented reality artworks.
The themes of my practice interrogate the areas of food sovereignty, world water scarcity and climate justice.
My forthcoming exhibition – ‘Galvanising Change’, an interactive audio Installation exploring climate justice, will be presented by Digital Arts Studios, Belfast as part of my recent British Council Residency.
I am currently working on an inter-disciplinary citizen science project with the National Oceanography Centre; collaborating with poet and artists Sarah Hymas and Alex Peckham to produce an augmented reality walk.
My work has been exhibited in public gardens, canals, theatres, galleries and on television. My writing has been published, staged and broadcast widely including the National Theatre and BBC Radio 4.
I have worked as an artist and writer with a range of organisations, such as Lets Go Global, B Arts and Northern Ballet Theatre, and with a wide range of participants, from those with little experience of the arts and creative writing, to those aspiring to become artists and writers. My projects and residencies include a diverse range of groups, including women’s groups and Black/Asian groups.
My participatory work as an artist includes working as Digital Artist with an LBGTQ group of young people at 42nd Street, in partnership with Lets Go, on a 3 year CIN project to make a digital tool that combats loneliness and isolation and a Transmedia project with George Salter Academy, Sandwell.
