translations are afforded differently depending on the material used. clay, for instance, can be placed in a formative state in which it affords the translation of ideas, environments and moments of time. wood, on the other hand, brings its own ideas and patterns. wood, instilled with the time passed and the process of change, allows us to emphasise the passage of time and translate the process of living. by embracing the differences in material affordance and the impact of the tools used, i can guide the process of change whilst allowing the tools and materials to guide me. together, we translate the pattern and story within to express a moment in time in an otherwise ever-changing environment.    

my work is a juxtaposition of the combined and detached, the loved and forgotten, the present and past. by embracing the everchanging, we also welcome the mistakes, the oddness, the surprises and the beauty in the mundane. i aim to capture and express the identity of the environment around us, allowing every day to take centre stage. 

the process is a translation of humanity – it is never-ending, and we can capture only glimpses of its development and change. alike us, the process of materials upon other materials age, dies and decomposes yet remains intact in the memories created. thus, together, we are the lab of translations.

lab of endless translations 

my art is aimed at embracing the identity of the materials. i notice and appreciate the process and potential of the materials and the environment. this allows me to express that which is hidden within. my aim is not the outcome itself; instead, i aim to emphasise the process of translation.
