I am a multi - media artist based in Scotland whose practice incorporates film; sound; archive; manipulated still images & site-specific interactions. My recent work comes from an interest in appropriating and deconstructing image, sound and narrative – digital twitches that disrupt time and narrative.Layering elements in anachronistic ways that perhaps result in an audio visual perpetual busyness without any obvious function or narrative.
