My practice uses sculpture, text, pop songs, collaborative publications, experimental videos, and performative events.

Conceptually framed in the legacy of the avant-garde and post-digital age, my work explores narratives, ecologies, and philosophical discourses around the role of art and politics, towards a dialogue of how we build worlds. My practice is a celebration of unfinished ideas, as if they were perpetually questioned, debated, echoed in communication.

I am a founding member of the experimental art-pop group Hatcham Social currently releasing through Fierce Panda Records and work in collaboration with Adele Lazzeri in the PRAGMATA collective, developing collaborative, curatorial and pedagogical projects and research. Public projects include working with Coops UK on radical business concepts;  forming collective DIY record label Crocodile Laboratories; and working with Future Narratives Lab as an associate, developing research into the stories that shape our present and future ideologies.
