My current work explores cultural beliefs in the notion of fate. I investigate how different cultures connect with fate and how it can be used map an individuals journey through life, as as a series of events leading to their true purpose in life.

There is a Chinese myth that explores this idea of fate. It states that there is an invisible red cord the Gods have tied on the ankles of those that are destined to meet. The cord may stretch or tangle but it will never break regardless of time, place or circumstance. The lives you are meant to touch will come to flourish, as it is apart of each individuals journey and ultimately their fate.

My practice explores the significance of making a journey has on an individual whether it be a physical, mental or spiritual journey. My work examines the human desire to seek purpose and how this need infiltrates the minds and bodies of the individuals who seek answers to their quest for knowledge of their Being.

The form my practice takes involves a seres of participatory projects that invites the viewer to take part in the making, the thinking and the questioning of the work which evolves over a period of time.
