Magical School of Confidence (2018), digital collage 
My practice could be seen as an expanded form of collage realised through digital video and image assemblage. Itinerant in nature, my work is currently preoccupied with themes of simulation, copying and circulation, and is an ongoing re-mediation of an increasingly virtual world. 
I am interested in the knowing misapplication of established techniques and formal strategies, the productive misinterpretation of existing cultural content. I am involved in a constant process of gathering materials into a vast digital archive - focusing on ‘poor’, lost or no-longer-seen images - and developing new frameworks or intuitive logics with which to reinsert them, offering them new life.

Thinking about how to activate my digital archive of images, I decided to treat it as its own miniature internet, and began to categorise images according to arbitrary, formal attributes in the same way that a search engine might.  
The short animation Pile (Circles) is a layering of all the circular images I've gathered in 2018, piled ontop of one another in chronological order into an enormous yet invisible stack.
