My practice is part homage, part critical inquiry, and engages in an exploration of place and personal identity through the juxtaposition of artificial and the real. My recent body of work for Cul-de-sac Island, combines illusory green screen techniques, lens-based strategies, and performance-as-reenactment, as I question personal and collective assumptions about landscape, and the correlation between nature and national identity. My current research is investigating the treatment of nature through tourism.
