These photographs come from a series taken in Tokyo early in 2015. They take advantage of the opportunistic views

seen from my window though to the hotel diagonally opposite, revealing the transparency within the architecture. What

I found engaging was the juxtaposition of the formalism of the architecture with the almost abstracted and varied images

of the guests within. I have tried to capture a sense of dehumanising and intimacy together. These images speak to the

multiplicity of ways we can misunderstand our fellow human by making assumptions about what we think might be 

occurring.  Tokyo

This series of images  are stills from videos recorded through the window with two iPhones to create a split screen

effect.  I am exploring the idea of surveyance and voyerism, and capture the accidential beauty caught in the silhouettes

and shadows of  folliage that provides a screen of privacy. These videos were taken at various times throughout the day

from daybreak to evening.

This body of work has been created following a three month residency I undertook in Berlin in 2014. Whilst there I made several

visits to the Bauhaus Museums in Berlin and Dessau. The Bauhaus is one of the most influential modernist art schools of the

20th century. The reigning principles were unity of form and function, the idea that design is in service of the community, and a

belief in the perfection and efficiency of geometry.

The five welded sculptures examine an idea advanced by the Bauhaus; how an object could be explored by reducing it to

an outline. I have explored this idea by creating abstracted architectural forms.

These photographs were part of the exhibition and come from a large series of images taken in Berlin. I noticed in the glass

façades the multiple imagery creating a collage of spatial overlays. These windows revealed the interiors before me,

reflected the exteriors behind and skies above me and sometimes showed the view through to the back and beyond the

glass walls of the building. At times it seemed as though the entire surrounding environment was reflected and referred

back to an ever changing to and fro interplay of shifting light, colours and forms. A slight change in position altered the

cryptic imagery before me. These images are from a larger series photographs I took as I cycled daily from my apartment in

Weserstraße, in Friedrichshain to various locations throughout Berlin.
