My interest lies in the relationship between materials and the space in which they were used. The design of small functioning objects is at the core of my works along with the re-appropriation of space in cities; how a building can be altered to host a new narrative. Often in my work, I expose the functional past by locating essential, sometimes overlooked structures within the architecture and emphasising the object or mechanism on a much larger scale. Using relative materials to form the ‘rough and ready’ aesthetic of these pieces allows the stages of construction to be noted.
