My art practice can be divided into four inter-related themes: the book and the word, bureaucracy, history and identity. These themes stem from my fascination with books, libraries and the impact of the word on the self.
To convey my ideas, I use a wide range of media including books, handwriting, digital media, furniture, office equipment, signwriter's vinyl and mirrored perspex. My work usually takes the form of installation, is often text-based and site-specific, and sometimes incorporates ritualistic writing performances. Increasingly, my projects involve collaborating with other experts such as architects, engineers, builders, and sound and video artists. My partner, Gerard Willems, assists with the engineering and construction of many of my large scale projects.
