About Artist

My work explores the intersections of art and the life sciences, focusing on the materiality of living and dying bodies and the relationship between consciousness and the material body. My work includes installation, media art, video, photography, sculpture, and performance. I hold a Bachelor of Science (1st Class Hons, Macquarie University, Sydney), a Bachelor of Visual Arts (Sydney College of the Arts, The University of Sydney) and a practice-based PhD (Sydney College of the Arts, The University of Sydney).
