Making:

I am currently creating collages with found/ printed materials.

I am working around the loose idea of the architecture of power, more specifically brutalist architecture, the architecture of bunkers/ concrete/ defence and ultimately the psychological impact of these kinds of architecture.

I am collaging both with paper and on Photoshop. I’m working towards a series of images that can be displayed together as an installation.

I have a few ideas as to how I will develop these collages, one of which being that they would be presented on a TV screen (or two… or three) and cut with video footage (It wouldn’t have a linear narrative but be more a collage of related imagery).
