“Having witnessed the gradual collapse of the distinction between reality/fantasy, fact/fiction, privacy/publicity, my sculptures are survivors of a struggle for supremacy between the virtual and the actual. They find their eventual destination within a theatre of artifice, where concrete notions of time and space are destabilised.

 

In this place, an emphasis on multiplication, exposure and display lead to an edited social consciousness that alters how we configure impressions of both ourselves and others. They are artefacts of a study of the boundaries of representation in a time when synthetic experience and existences prevail, mediated by social media and digital imaging.” rca.ac.uk
