Through a disruptive and transformative process, I work with raw material, image, object and sound to create sculptural installations. The work draws inspiration from and connection between science, psychology, eastern philosophy and science fiction to explore ideas of universal interconnection. Within this constellation of things, I collapse notions of the infinite and intangible into physical form.

I am one part of Beyond Beyond, a cross-disciplinary collaborative studio based between London and Milan.
