Installations and related works 1994 - 2016


This site shows a selection of work produced since 1994. Further images and text will be added over time.

My work deals with how memories and narratives are implicit in our construction of knowledge, and how the Eurocentric view (my own view), though regarded as objective, is the result of pre-existing believes.
The work references the history and philosophy of the natural sciences and the history of museums and scientific institutions, and uses archives, museums of natural history, laboratories and research stations as visual and spatial inspiration.
A wide variety of materials are used in the production of objects and spaces that imply a range of functions, though these are never explicit. The recent work involves video as an integral element of devices of lenses and mirrors, which work to both mediate the image and make the viewer aware of the relationship with this video element.

Currently I am based in Taiwan, an experience that will be reflected in the new projects.
