Refuge for Stationary Vehicles, Etched aluminum, tin cans, tar, wood, rubble from roadwork site, Variable dimensions, 2013

My work is a probe into sites and structures of belonging. Drawing on a combination of interests in dwelling, homeliness, public space and infrastructures, but also intimate objects and habits, I develop my work in a direction that is both parallel and divergent. My work could be described as being aligned in the way of a train of thought, but to remain true to the untidiness of experiences, at times it takes on a variety of premises.
