“I create work in the guise of a wandering bricoleur exploring where nature and culture intersect, making resourceful use of the materials at hand. I collect and use estuarine mud and excavated clay, brick and rock fragments to investigate the anthropogenic remixing and movement of geological material. This process usually begins with a map and a walk. Whether I’m mud-larking on the Thames foreshore, where the tide deposits a new configuration several times a day, or attempting to make concrete from basic principles, the objective has been to look at the construction of ‘landscape’ and the nature and composition of a contemporary city. ” Dissertation (Distinction): Representing Uncertainty: The Object of Climate Change
