Perception of space and the pervasiveness of play go hand in hand within my work, play is my methodology, my navigational tool through spaces, converting them to heterotopic playgrounds. I aim to view spaces as a player, mapping a playful exploration of the space. Changing space into place, creating a familiarity with the surrounding landscapes through motion. And only through these motions can the connection occur. Exploring spaces through abnormal habits, following my intuition over my caution. With video being my storytelling device, the creative outlet, devising abstract performances for the camera based on adventurous tendencies, which we all possess within us. My installations aim to create immersive spaces, where viewers are encapsulated and can embark on a ludic journey. In the hope that people leave considering the spaces around them, and ask how can they be re-defined? Playgrounds are all around us, our inhibitions stop us from noticing them.
