My practice looks at the spaces we inhabit.  I use assemblage and installation to evoke memory, inviting others to pay attention to how we encounter the world around us. 

I’m interested in recording details of unwitnessed lives.  I now work closely with archives, in observing the way we record our daily movements.  My current work has measured the escapes of female asylum patients, using everyday domestic materials, such as soap.  Recently I’ve started retracing journeys of forgotten people contained in institutions, by introducing a narrative to walking.
