As an artist and researcher, my focus is on understanding the forces that engender a sense of belonging within a population. My previous work as a graphic designer has given me a particular critical insight into the relationship between cultures and the images they create. As a society, we produce the spaces in which we live – socially, politically and physically – and the images that reflect on these, therefore by analysing space and image as creative mediums, I attempt to reveal the underlying behaviours that shape our contemporary situation.
