I explore the translations that occur through process and creation. My practice is focussed on the murky spaces that are a product of these translations. Using both traditional building techniques and technology I explore how an object transforms in both its physicality and meaning through process and reinterpretation. Technologies such as scanning and 3D printing allow me to focus on the moments where the physical is translated to digital and vice versa. A 3D scan may fail to capture accurately, or a printer may generate support. These discrepancies of our current capabilities become generative of new form. This is where I find my work, navigating the edges of destruction and construction, ideas that morph through translation. I embrace and utilize these digital shortcomings as a marking of time within culture and my own art practice.
